Welcome! Good to read you. I recommend hanging out here, reading some shares, and seeing who you are drawn to. For me, the effort of asking someone to sponsor me was really part of the work of recovery. It's also great when the sponsor just adopts you, and I've read of that lucky beginning to taking the steps happening to others, but for many of us, selecting and going out on a limb to ask someone makes one a bit more committed to following through on the effort involved.
Another great part of having a sponsor is having someone in the same group, observing and supporting as one involves oneself in the meetings. If you want to join e-AA, there are several ways of participating -- these forums, the chat room, the mailing lists (our women's email meeting is very active). Keep showing up, share, help out, and respond to the shares. You'll get known and you'll get to know others. Be a part -- and this is maybe how the adoption process happens
Meanwhile, there are some great online resources, for example, the Joe and Charlie Big Book Comes Alive tapes and transcripts, our 12 Steps forum, the Big Book, 12 Steps and Twelve Traditions . . .
Lots of folk willing to pass on their experience, strength and hope. Whose experience, strength and hope speaks to you? You may know right away, or you may want to give yourself some time to consider your options. But you are welcome here, so please keep coming back!
