A Sponsor Cannot Keep Us In Recovery
A sponsor cannot keep us in recovery.

Whether or not to use or to engage in compulsive behavior is a decision we alone can make. No one else can make it for us. No one else can keep us clean. Not a family member, not a friend, not a boss, and not a sponsor. It is said that sponsors “don’t take the credit when their sponsees stay clean and they don’t take the blame when they use.” The decision to stay in recovery is ours alone. We make it one day at a time with the help of the program and our Higher Power. Our Twelve Step gives us the power of choice.
