Re: My home group & resentment creeping in

Thanks everyone. Some really great advice there. I did ask someone to be my sponsor but she says she doesn’t sponsor. She’s a good person to talk to, but yes I really do need to do the steps. The zoom meetings have been great and I’ve met new people from around the country so I’m hoping I’ll be wor...

Re: AA in Morocco?

How exciting.

I do so love how AA works !

Amazing ~ you are only about an hour away ~ thirty miles apart ~ 63 km.

I am 29 hrs away from you ~ 2,671.2 km

Do let us know how this works out for you.

Re: Helping Abusive Father?

Hi there, I am not sure where to start with this, but any help or advice would be so much appreciated. I was living with my father who has always been an alcoholic, but it wasn't problematic per say, until he became abusive. Years later, it is very difficult to contact him because of what he put us...

Re: Can AA actually work for me?

AA resources are frequently posted. Links approved by our links committee and anything from AA approved literature is most welcome.

Some non-AA resources are presented to appear to be AA resources and these, of course, would not be approved.

Re: Sponsorship query.

No definitive answers or arguments, just observations really.. Different sponsors have different approaches to how they offer guidance. Some newcomers want to work with sponsors who tell them exactly what to do and when, while others need a gentler, more flexible approach. The sponsor you choose sho...

I have tried to request a temporary sponsor but I never get a reply. Maybe I didn’t do it correctly
Welcome Kelly.

I assigned you a sponsor on Monday 22nd. You should have heard by now so please check your spam folder.

Meanwhile, I have also contacted the sponsor assigned to you.
