2.There Is A Solution.
3.More About Alcoholism.
We provide a temporary sponsor facility here at e-AA.
To request a temporary sponsor to get you started with the AA programme, please complete our form here:
A temporary sponsor is a sober member of Alcoholics Anonymous who is willing to share their experience, strength, and hope with another alcoholic as a way of service to help insure their own sobriety.
Their main function is to help guide the new person towards the 12 Steps, and also, where appropriate, to help guide the new person to face to face meetings and a f2f sponsor in their local AA community.
We assign women for women and men for men.
An excellent introduction on sponsorship, permanent or temporary, with questions and answers, is this pamphlet
from GSO :
Questions and Answers on Sponsorship:

Chris welcome to the forum. Jojo has provided valuable information. One thing you can do right away is access the text Alcoholics Anonymous online and read the chapter more about alcoholism. It helped many of us here to realize that the mind is the key culprit and that we need to have a attitude shift and the 12 steps is what helps us have a shift.hello im chris im struggling pretty bad with staying off booze. i keep going back thinking i can handle it . i have 1 day sober as of right now really want and need to keep it up this time for good
