In the beginning Aaron needed the hard nose variety of a sponsor. “ I’m that kind that needs a punch in the head, and told to sit down and shut up and follow directions to get it.” When he first came in at age 24, he thought he could wait until he was older to get the program, but he had seen members in his family who struggled with this problem and decided to try OA.
Now after 10 months and 54 pounds weight loss he still works the steps with his sponsor. Sometimes he will skimp on the work with reading and writing and his sponsor will say “Hey – nice diet you’re on!” That gets his attention and he knuckles under and picks up the steps and the tools again.
