I would enjoy hearing more about the experience, strenght, and hope, of those who are involved in secular recovery and how they do it.

I would like to hear about the numbers of people who attend meetings (if meeting are attended). Are there just a few, maybe 50, or a hundred or more, that kind of numbers.

I am curious about fellowship. BBQ's, dances, etc.

I am curious about the books that might be read.

Maybe you need a warning yourself, don't you know that the more you stir it the more it stinks.........said in love.

I love you and there is not a damn thing you can do about it.

If I am cruious about secular recovery do I not have the right to post here and ask questions?.......toad
Frankly, I'd post more often in this forum if I could do so without having to deal with those who clearly shouldn't be posting here.

You're not looking very hard. There's a thread devoted to what people do to assist their recovery right here in secular connections.

This thread seems doomed.

Toad, I went back to the original post. I'm not sure what the "question" was.
They had to close a thread.......what does that tell you?

"Love and tolerance is our code."

Really, does it matter how I got sober? How does it effect your sobriety?

It doesn't matter where you post or what meeting you go to or don't go to....How ever you get/got sober is YOUR business. No matter where you post on SR personally, I'm only interested in hearing your experiences. Not your judgment of other people's experiences. I find the bickering and "my way is better than your way" thoughts tiresome and so counterproductive. It wears me out. But then, that's just my opinion, it might be wrong.

I pulled this quote from one of Toad's posts from another secular thread and I think we can pretty much take his posts with a grain of salt. Focusing on others is a sure way to divert attention away from one's own recovery. Self-Righteous indignation is what I am seeing here.

Can the monitors please ban people who continue to stir things up in a thread that has absolutely nothing in common with their own recovery? This person clearly has an agenda to be disruptive and I would hope that you will take a stance on this.
