Seeking online sponsor

Most of us who recovered with AA's program did so with the help of a "sponsor". But what is sponsorship? How do I get one? Who can be a sponsor? What makes a good sponsor?

HI Nicole! e-AA offers online line sponsorship I think... I know they can direct you to a woman with sobriety that has done the steps. Contact e-AA here and let them know what you need.

Good luck. Keep coming back!

Hi Nicole,

Awesome to meet you and glad you found us. It's so great you are seeking sponsorship, because a sponsor should be able to help you take the actions recommended in the Big Book, and those lead to recovery from this illness. It works!

I hope you keep visiting us online -- I'm a social phobic as well, but have learned to deal with it, mostly thanks to taking the steps (acceptance and a loving relationship with a higher power work wonders for most fears, including social ones). However I'm a chatterbox online, and it's been a great outlet for me.

I also wanted to mention that a really great way to get a sponsor is to ask someone, someone you admire. so if you do some reading here and see a woman who's got what you want, shoot her a pm and just ask. Actually, that's the way we sort of do it nowadays, the potential sponsee can *choose* -- but of course it's done all sorts of ways.

Welcome to e-AA!
