Chat Room Guidelines ... Read Before Entering

Rooms open for 30 minutes of Fellowship before and after each meeting.

The chat rooms serve as both our meeting room and fellowship hall. For meeting times, please see the

meeting schedule.

To check your time for meetings around the world, on the World Clock.

If a meeting is in progress when you enter the chat rooms, please take a few moments to become oriented. Usually, a greeter will contact you privately and will inform you of the topic being discussed and the basics of using the chat rooms.  Meeting Protocol is in place until the Chair announces Open Chat. If you would like to share, please type !! and wait for the Chair to invite you to speak. Please type End when done.
During non-meeting times, much socializing occurs. Though The e-AA Group of Alcoholics Anonymous has no opinions on outside issues, individuals often do, and most likely you will hear a few. 

Decorum Guidelines

We neither endorse nor oppose other recovery sites. 

Please do not refer to named sites or provide links to specific sites in our Fellowship Room.

The following approved link may be helpful:

The following are chatroom-specific examples of inappropriate content. They have been used by what we currently call "monitors" and passed along informally until now.
  • Extended discussions of non-AA programs (see Note 1 in Decorum Guidelines).
  • Recommendations and discussions of what drugs or medications a chatter should be taking (aka "playing doctor"). " It was realized early on that A.A. could not solve all the problems people have and long ago chose to limit its primary purpose to helping people recover from alcoholism only. Drinking too much is just about the only thing we all have in common and many fear A.A. would lose its identity and effectiveness if it were to address problems other than alcoholism."
  • Quoting, just because he or she can, line after line of religious or other texts, unrelated to any current discussion thread and intended to disrupt (imagine, for example, trying to chat with a newcomer and every other line on the screen is a quote from the Bible).
  • Harassment or "stalking" of any type.
  • "13th Stepping" and extended flirting, or "virtual sex" (see Note 2 in Decorum Guidelines).
  • Sexual innuendo and crude remarks (see Note 3 in Decorums Guidelines).
  • Profanity (see Note 4 in Decorum Guidelines).
  • Personal attacks.
  • Anti-AA (or anti-e-AA Group) remarks and discussions.
  • Vulgar or sexual talk in private chat is inappropriate. Logs are read, including private chats.

Decorum in General

Standard Internet decorum applies (see any reputable ISP's "terms of use" policy). The following are not allowed (anywhere on the e-AA web site or email lists -- or within the chatrooms):

  • content that is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, tortious, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, libelous, invasive of another's privacy, hateful, or racially or ethnically objectionable.
  • content that will harm minors in any way.
  • content that infringes any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or other proprietary rights of any party.
  • any unsolicited advertising, promotional materials, "junk mail," "spam," "chain letters," "pyramid schemes," or any other form of solicitation.
  • Any non AA-approved links in chatroom of any kind.

Please refer to the Chat Room Decorum Guidelines for further information concerning this groups guidelines.

Profiles and Personal Information

The e-AA group attempts to keep our chat room a safe, friendly, AA-oriented 12-Step-focused room. There are several billion people who have access to the internet. Once in the chat rooms, registered users will have access to information you enter in your profile or share in open chat. We urge caution in filling out profiles and providing e-mail addresses and other contact information. The e-AA Group reserves the right to deny or delete any inappropriate screen names. The Monitors may read the chat transcripts and all private chats in an effort to keep the room a safe and friendly place. All private chats are strictly confidential.
