I feel guilty about not sponsoring, I admit that.
Don't. I have tried it and it's just not for me. I admit it. I make a crumby sponsor. Maybe someday - but not for now.
Actually I think it's because I had a young (in AA) sponsor at the beginning and then had a horrible experience trying to pick a new one after the first one moved away. It was some old guy that turned out to be trying to 13th step me. He, and a bunch of his acolytes, were "woman haters" and, I think, a clique of gays.

There is 1000+ different ways of carrying the message other than sponsoring. When I came in to the rooms.. we didn’t pick our sponsors... They PICKED US!!.
Excuse me sir, we need you to step over here into the half measures room while we decide your fate.
