Welcome, MJ! You say you are an alcoholic? You are in the right placde!!! Lots of good folks here. You may not get too many welcomes today as there aren't so many people here on weekends, but others will be along to welcome you. I cannot tell from your name whether you are male or female but if female, we have a great closed women's discussion forum here we'd love for you to join. Just let me know and I'll ask Hawk to get you in there.

All, I just made sticky post here:

http://www.e-aa.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=14077

addressing the issue of how one may join a closed a forum. be assured that as the women who is currently has the trusted servant position of adding new members to the closed women forum that I do keep my eye out for requests to join on the forums, and I except that those responsible for adding and approving new members of the closed men forum and the desire to stop drinking forum do the same. And at some point I will rotate out of this service and another woman will take over. Please be patient, it might take a few hours or over night before your request to join is acted on.

And yes, we welcome new members in the women forum, as Lali suggested.

MJ1, not to worry, people don't always know that I am female by my user name. There are a good group of sober men here, please feel free to ask to join the closed men's forum.

Welcome MJ1 and jspeaksr. AA has the solution.

Keep coming to this site, ask some questions and you are sure to find out about how we found a solution to our
drinking problem through AA.

Best of everything on your search for sobriety.
