I don't think I could ever do it, besides theres enough ppl in NA that if one of the ppl in my family wanted to get a sponsor thy can find one like I had to, not to say I would not give them a ride and introduce them to the program but it would be like me sponsoring my self right back into the insanity part of the disease.

It created allot of stress in the situation I was in.
I could not live by the principles I needed,and became a walking character defect

Can you sponsor a family member and/or close friend? Have you ever sponsored someone close to you?
