A sponsor is someone who helps another member of AA "work" the steps. This finding supports one of the primary principles of AA involvement - being of service to others. It's also nearly impossible to sponsor another without having a sponsor yourself, so that sponsors are, in effect, always "working the steps." As to confrontation, there is little of that in most AA meetings where members are encourage to share their own experience rather than their opinions and are asked not to "cross talk," i.e., respond to other member's "shares" in any way other than to thank them for sharing or calling attention to an experience similar to the one shared. Anthropologists who have studied AA groups call the process "folk healing" the AA a "mutual aid" society rather than a "self help" program. There are a fair number of scholarly articles on how AA works for the people for whom it works. I personally don't believe I'd be sober without it. More importantly, I do not believe I would have achieved the degree of emotional health that I have managed to achieve without learning and "working" those simple steps.
