Sponsorship is an opportunity to strengthen and deepen your personal program of recovery by walking with someone else. It is a mutual and confidential sharing between two EA members. Experience shows that sponsorship is a valuable aid to understanding the EA program. Having constant, personal support between meetings helps dispel confusion and allows members to share problems on a one-to-one basis.
2016 is the "Year of Sponsorship" in EA, when we are encouraging every group to discuss the role sponsorship can have in the lives of our members and to consider offering a special workshop, retreat, or even devote a meeting to talking about how to encourage sponsorship - both being a sponsor and having one!
