When you don't know something. ASK!
firstly, Well done for learning how to ask Aa's and sponsors for advice!.
But why stop there?
Basically why not 'practice this principle in ALL your affairs'
The world is full of MANY 'powers greater than yourself' in MANY areas of life.
So, if you are having a problem with a co worker. Don't just talk to your sponsor about it. Ask someone at work!
So, if you are having a problem with your car Don't just talk to your sponsor about it. Ask someone who knows about cars!
So, if you are having a problem with your other half, Don't just talk to your sponsor about it. Email a Relationship therapist!
So, if you are having a problem with your leaky roof, Don't just talk to your sponsor about it. Ask the guys at the DIY shop!
Basically, what I am trying to say, is that:
WHEN SOMEONE HAS GREATER ACCUMULATED KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE ABOUT ANYTHING THAN YOU,
IN THAT RESPECT THEY ARE A POWER GREATER THAN YOU.
Ie They are a HP IN THAT AREA.
So consult them!!
I do get a BIT !!! Annoyed when people start asking me about dry rot, mortgage advice, shopping queries !!!! And GOD KNOWS WHAT!!
Hey! Use all the MANY resources out there of people that are EXPERTS on their chosen field of expertise.
Just don't keep asking AA people, or your sponsor for SPECIALIST queries!!

- I have recovered from the disease of Alcoholism. I believe there is only one person really,.. everybody. And that peace of mind is everything. -So treat your neighbor as you would treat yourself, because your neighbor IS yourself. I think most of recovery is what I would call common sense, but that learning to be ordinary is a true gift very few people acquire. My ambition is to accept everything unflinchingly, with compassion, and therefore be intrinsically comfortable in my own skin, no matter what. I am comfortable being uncomfortable and am willing to go to any lengths to improve my life. I believe the Big Book was divinely inspired, and is extraordinarily powerful. Unfortunately AA's best kept secret a lot of the time. (In my opinion). I just try to do what works, no matter what it is.
