I need a sponsor, im new here..

Most of us who recovered with AA's program did so with the help of a "sponsor". But what is sponsorship? How do I get one? Who can be a sponsor? What makes a good sponsor?

Hello Desera,

Welcome to the e-AA forums. Is your drinking a problem? If so you are in the right place.

Can you share a little about what is going on? If you are in need of a temporary sponsor, we have men and women who are ready, willing, and able to be a temporary sponsor and they can help you get started on working the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous, go to this link:

http://www.e-aa.org/form_sponsors.php

and fill out the form.

Also, if you can, may I suggest that you try to get an A.A. meeting in or near where you live. Do you have our Big Book, which describes the 12 steps of A.A., along with stories? If not, there is an online version here:

Desera,

I'm not on the temporary sponsor committee, but I think that you should hear from them within 24 hours. Just be patient and someone should get back to you. In the meantime, as I suggested when you wrote in the guest forum, I'd encourage you to post any questions you have and tell us a little about yourself in the for newcomers forum:

http://www.e-aa.org/forum/viewforum.php?f=11

A lot of newcomers post questions in that forum and many forum regulars monitor that forum.

Welcome, desera! E-aa is great and I"m glad I found these forums. It's great that temporary sponsorship is available for people who can't go to face to face meeting. However, if you are going to attend face to face meetings which I highly recommend, I would get a face to face sponsor.

I posted this because I wanted you to know all of your options!

I hope you stick around and keep posting!
Step 1: I can't
Step 2: He can
Step 3: I think I'll let him
