This is a very good topic to start this PABR section soberlicious.

I don't think that people in early recovery "are a special group incapable of critical thinking, filtering information or making choices". Quite the contrary. Those in early recovery are typically quite rational and capable of good decisions about their own recovery. At the same time I think we should keep in mind is that these same folks are much more vulnerable to stress in the early stages of recovery.

A highly contentious discussion can easily be perceived as unsupportive, and this is exactly what these new folks do not need.
