The #SLAA Online Group meetings operate on United States Eastern Time meaning that we observe US Eastern Standard Time in the winter half year and US Eastern Daylight (Saving) Time in the summer half year.
For the purposes of recognition and security in the room each Member shall choose one nickname upon entering our community for the first time. This name must be a name that is not being used by another member in the room.
It may come to your attention later that the name you have chosen is already in use, and you may be asked to change your name by an Op.
Lastly, we ask that each Member use their name and refrain from constant name changing, in order to avoid confusion to others and to the ops who have to verify identities in the room. Name changes due to afk, or disconnect are allowed. Only in compelling circumstance may a name be changed otherwise. New members will have a month to choose a nick name.
Please help us to spread the word to local S.L.A.A. meetings about online recovery:Back to Top
“F2F” is an acronym we use online to mean “face-to-face” or local meetings.
Two of our traditions state:
5) Each group has but one primary purpose — to carry its message to the sex and love addict who still suffers.
11) Our public relations policy is based on attraction rather than promotion.
Since we do not advertise, one of the best ways to share the benefits of the #SLAA Online Group is by making announcements about our online group at your local S.L.A.A. meetings.
Some meetings have a time that announcements may be offered or submitted ahead of time in writing. Sometimes this is done more personally before or after a meeting by mentioning how easy and beneficial participation in our group can be. If a person is interested, you can simply write down our website address for them to take home.
