New to this forum, looking to make some connections. Some background, I picked up my 3 year coin tonight at my home group, I had a sponsor but haven't really thoroughly worked the steps and I'm looking to do that as well. My first sponsor was very ummm lax. Great guy, great sponsor but I want to dive in deeper and don't know where to begin. Thanks

Hi Andrew welcome to e-AA. The forums here are sometimes a little slow to respond to new members and I apologize for that, it just depends on how active the boards are at any given time and who is reading the new posts.

It works just as you did it, we post something and others respond, the PM (private message) feature is used if someone wants to send a personal note or link to another site or speaker etc. any PM's sent to you a message comes up saying you have one.


I also spent a good while in AA before going past step three, hanging on but unhappy as hell, this dry drunk business is just putting ourselves through torture, and many can't stay sober this way. The literature says that if we continue like this we will sooner or later fall on our backsides, because we don't have an effective defense against the first drink.

There is a section here to apply for an online or temporary sponsor, I should have the link but can't find it right now, perhaps someone else will give it to you. In the meantime others will most likely be along to offer their experience in this matter, this is a first class AA site with lots of good recovery advise, glad you are here.

Glad you found us adsmith! I agree that we are a first class AA site - we adhere to the Traditions as best as possible! I do hope you find what you are looking for. I came to e-aa with the hope of upping the "daily maintenance" of my program and I haven't missed very many days since then! So I tried it and it worked!

Keep coming back. Float around the boards and post where you feel like it. Start a new thread anytime!
