General EA Poster

Small, internationally-affiliated Twelve-Step support groups in the Triad area of NC for people who seek recovery from their emotional difficulties and want to become well emotionally. A safe, anonymous, respectful environment stressing self-worth, self-knowledge and self-care. As our Concepts suggest, we aim for an atmosphere of love and acceptance. EA was formed by a group of individuals who found a new way of life by working the program of Alcoholics Anonymous, as adapted for people with emotional problems.

We invite you to discover that our EA fellowship of weekly meetings is warm and friendly, and that it is important to us all for achieving and maintaining emotional health. We do it one hour at a time because ours is a twenty-four hour program. You are not alone unless you choose to be!

The Triad area has two on-going weekly meetings:

Our Winston-Salem meeting is Wednesday from 7:30 - 9:00PM. It it is held at Augsburg Lutheran Church on Fifth St. Newcomers are always welcome, and our meetings are open to all. (Please access our TriadEA virtual meeting above.)

Serenity Prayer

God, grant me the serenity
To accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.

Just for Today - The Choice is Mine

1.  Just for today I will try to live through this day only, not tackling all of my problems at once. I can do something at this moment that would discourage me if I had to continue it for a lifetime.
2.  Just for today I will try to be happy, realizing my happiness does not depend on what others do or say or what happens around me. Happiness is a result of being at peace with myself.
3.  Just for today I will try to adjust myself to what is and not force everything to adjust to my own desires. I will accept my family, my friends, my business, my circumstances as they come.
4.  Just for today I will take care of my physical health; I will exercise my mind; I will read something spiritual.
5.  Just for today I will do somebody a good turn and not get found out. If anyone knows of it, it will not count. I will do at least one thing I don't want to do, and I will perform some small act of love for my neighbor
6.  Just for today I will try to go out of my way to be kind to someone I meet. I will be considerate, talk low, and look as good as I can. I will not engage in unnecessary criticism or finding fault, nor try to improve or regulate anybody except myself.
7.  Just for today I will have a program. I may not follow it exactly, but I will have it. I will save myself from two pests - hurry and indecision.
8.  Just for today I will stop saying, "If I had time." I never will find time for anything. If I want time, I must take it.
9.  Just for today I will have a quiet time of meditation wherein I shall think of my Higher Power, of myself, and of my neighbor. I shall relax and seek truth.
10. Just for today I shall be unafraid. Particularly, I shall be unafraid to be happy, to enjoy what is good, what is beautiful, and what is lovely in life.
11. Just for today I will not compare myself with others. I will accept myself and live to the best of my ability.
12. Just for today I choose to believe that I can live this one day.

The choice is mine.
