Sponsor for my Recovery

As I think about all of the people that I have asked to be a sponsor for my recovery program, it looks like I will have to start a new list. I know that today’s Daily Meditation covered the the subject of what to look for.

I will have to pray about my search. I know that from some of my experience that it has been difficult to explain exactly what the role of a sponsor is. Fortunately the Meditation for today, which is Sunday October 23, 2016 has a scripture verse with it. I read the verse out loud.

The primary issue that I have with my GA experience is what else to say about my other recovery issues. The good thing is that in the Golden State of California there has to have been one other person who I can contact to be a sponsor, accountability partner or temporary sponsor.

I do have the CR Bible eBook that I got this past Sunday, and I spoke with someone in the Business Office about ordering the Participants Guides for my Kindle on my Apple iPad. I have been through a CR Step Study before, and Participants Guide One covers the first three steps of any recovery program.

Of course my issues regarding SA and SimCityBuildit, which I thought about this past Friday I know that every support group has their own little control code. I don’t believe that I am actually addicted to the game on my Apple iPad. I have other things on my IPad besides SimCity. I have another Bible that I got from Tecarta. I will have to wait about six weeks to be able to ask someone.

My Home Church is Westminster Presbyterian Church for right now. That is in Sacramento. I joined them when I was living Downtown at Pensione K. I can listen to past sermons online and watch videos of some of the past M.A.N. Concerts. I listened to last weeks sermon on my iPad last night. This was during dinner in the Dining Room.

Survivor Wednesday

Tonight is another episode of Survivor on CBS. I plan to watch it tonight on TV. That is great news for my recovery. I didn’t understand the first three steps when I picked up the Love Hunger Workbook while working at Borland..

I know now that the first Step in any recovery group is saying your name, and what your in recovery for. For example, when I realized that I was a problem gambler, I began to attend GA meetings. I would say something like my name is Brian and I am a problem Gambler. There are Step Studies, and other types of support. The problem with the Love Hunger Program was the fact that I was dealing with more than just Food.

Now the challenge for me is how to step out of denial. Maybe sometime in the next ninety days I will find the answer. All I know now is that I am at Gramercy Court. I have another appointment in two weeks down on Timberlake Way with my Eye Doctor. Today I finished Day four in my Daily Devotional in my CR Bible that I got this past Sunday.

I plan to go to Day 5 on Thursday. I will probably review today’s reading one more time today. I am not planning on getting to my third step until December.

Today is today.

Breakfast in the Dining Room

I just had Breakfast in the Dining Room here at Gramercy Court. It was a good meal, with egg, toast, jelly and Cream of Wheat. Then there was Hot Chocolate, Milk and Apple Juice.

Normally after Breakfast I come out to the lobby, but I went back and got my medication after Breakfast.

I need the Internet for stuff on my IPad, so I am in the lobby now.

I know there is a Music at Noon concert at my church, but that is downtown.
