Please review this forum's rules so we don't run into problems.

Refrain from outside agendas. I see a lot of bashing of the recovery movement or the treatment industry. I see a lot of references to the 12 step program without actually naming it. Everyone knows what you are saying even you don't actually use the name. Don't try to convert by letting everyone know what is wrong with everything out there. We had an RR forum up years ago and it only lasted 3 days because the whole focus what on discrediting what a lot of our members on other forums use for their recovery.

What you can do. You can talk about specific details of what you may recognize as AV. Example: Relapse prevention is AV. Counting days is AV. Thinking in terms of "One day at a time" is AV. (I'm guessing)
Explain why. I know deprogramming is a part of the process and I think there are respectful ways of doing that, that don't violate our rules.

To others: Don't come in and debate on why you disagree unless you are having a discussion that is within the forum topic with the goal of achieving a better understanding.

All other forum rules apply that are used for all the forums.
You avoid reality because it is easier for you to shoulder the burden than to face unimaginable grief-Spock
