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?

Temporary Sponsorship at e-AA

Post by Jojo2 »


Welcome to all our new members and especially to those of you new to AA.

To help guide you towards the Twelve Steps, we provide a Temporary Sponsor facility here at e-AA.

To be assigned a temporary sponsor, please complete the 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.

An excellent introduction on sponsorship, permanent or temporary, with questions and answers, is this pamphlet from GSO :
