Hi,

I am getting on the wagon for the umpteenth time, and am about to complete my rehab program. Online meetings sound appealing due to my schedule, so glad I found this forum. I appreciate any tips or suggestions on how to make the most it here.

Thx,
Jaznut

Nothing beats the chemistry of being able to look people in the eye when they share from their heart - from their Inner-most Self. Maybe even get a free cuppa coffee!

Cling to the thought that, in God's hands, the dark past is the greatest possession you have - the key to life and happiness for others. With it you can avert death and misery for them. page 124 BB

Hi Jaznut, welcome. I'm Betsy, an alcoholic. I got sober here (online at e-AA). I also got sober in my local AA meetings, with a local sponsor. I supplemented my local AA with being here at e-AA most nights. For me, both venues worked well together.

I would not suggest you try to work the AA program solely online. The program is so much more vibrant in our local communities. Nothing beats face to face contact, and getting to know other local sober AAers. A local sponsor can help you work the steps of this life-saving program, as well as help you with some practical tips on staying sober.

But this online forum is an excellent supplement. It is a way to keep our brains in the AA program even when we are settled into our homes at the end of each day.

Welcome!!!
