Service helps me...

From that ten-cent phone call and a cup of coffee to AA's General Service Office. What's your take on service?

Service helps me...

Postby PaigeB » Sun Jun 26, 2011 10:41 am

Hi all! Yesterday I was a forums newcomer and today I am an enthusiast! Service is what keeps me sober, so how do I find service work in the E-AA format? Any information on time frames and service suggestions would be appreciated!

Hello Paige.

One place to start gathering information is in this section of our discussion forums. viewforum.php?f=58

There you will find lot's of information about the E-AA Group. We are a lot larger then what you see here in these discussion forums. Lot's and lots of service opportunities.

Another place to find out about service within the E-AA Group is to join our e-mail business/Group conscience meeting. If one goes to http://www.e-aa.org/maillist.html one can find it.

thanks for asking.
regards,
karl

hi Paige, here is another thought to get into service here on e-aa: http://www.e-aa.org/chat.php

Chairs and Greeters Needed!
Regular weekly Chair people and Greeters needed If you are a regular chatter, who has been in chat for over 30 days, and have 90 or more days sobriety and wish to chair, please see JoJo......If you have 30 + days sober, and wish to be a greeter please see Ana, for service positions! thank you in advance for your service work!.


I registered and this was a great start for me in service here, and may be of interest to you also
hope this helps, (it did me) 8)
Jack

Thanks Tommy. One day drinking was my entire world and now AA takes up a lot of time, but now I am free to enjoy life around me. Regarding both time and money AA never takes as much as drinking did. :wink:
