19. Well, you wouldn't qualify for me

Because there is not one bit of snark in my heart for you. That said, you share wisdom here that seems tailor made for me, so don't quit talking.

I love the pigeons joke!

And lastly, while I get your concern, I'm not only relying on the literature but it was a bedrock for me the last time and I know it will be this time. It's a springboard from which my recovery can launch. Soon, very soon, I will pick a sponsor.

Now, a question, if I may? Al anon has been helpful, meeting wise, but it isn't a great fit because alcohol isn't/ wasn't the problem. I'm looking into a F2F CoDA meeting that doesn't fall on a work night ( damn these 12 hour shifts) and I expect to find someone there. But, I'm very active with an online group, and in fact, "attend" about three meetings a week there. They are some of the best run meetings I've ever seen. Finally, the question....... Can an online (and obviously phone) sponsor work? I know a number of long timers there have placed themselves on a list that says they are willing to sponsor.
