Hey dude, there's no condescension in my post. I'm an old fuck who's been sober probably longer than you've been alive. Reread my post and if you get your head pulled out of your butt long enough you may understand why I asked those questions.
However, if you ARE a young person without a long drinking history, and a short history of atheism, you're in for a tougher ride. If that's the case, I can see why you might think I'm being a condescending old turd.
Hell, I've been fighting on an unbeliever card for a long ass time. Believe me when I say that finding a sponsor who's doing more than humoring you until he can get you to believe in god is a tough trick.
Good luck buddy.
