Well, I think insofar as having a sponsor goes, when one chooses to be his own sponsor, it is not unlike the attorney who represents him (or herself), because in either case we have a "fool fora client."
I've done a lot of soul-searching in the last couple of days, and I guess more than anything else, I'm thoroughly confused. But it seems like perhaps the best way out of the mess I've got myself in (calling 9-1-1 when I should not have) is to "face the music."
I've decided to report for jail duty. When I serve my 10 days in jail, I'll be free of $1,000 indebtedness, be able to pay off my small fine for shoplifting at Target (bike light, yoga mat), and then have my criminal record expunged. That way, I can possibly once again get my teaching credential back and go to work.
The bright side? I get to quit smoking, can lose some weight, and when I get out, go back to A.A. meetings and be able to more fully relate to the kids who have been in jail. For that's my calling, to work with kids who have had a hard time of it...and unless I go through the experiences they go through, how can I understand them?
