Sending the same post to
two or more different organizations or groups. As addressed
in the To: line or CC: line, either in recovery or not in
recovery or to other people is discouraged since it could
breech the confidentiality and the anonymity of the members
of the group
If one wants to send the
same post it is requested that you copy and paste the post
in a new email. It may be more time consuming, but it is a
good way to try to ensure the confidentiality of the group.
The intention of this SOS
email meeting is to provide as safe and
a place as possible for
members to share their joys and pains in getting and staying
Disruptions, or flaming,
that is attacking someone on the list either personally,
their individual program, or religious, non-religious views,
may be considered disruptions to the group meeting.
A very simple way to avoid
disruptions is to treat everyone with respect, to speak from
personal experiences when responding to a post, and to allow
each person to speak their own truth even if we disagree
with it. Keep in mind that the focus of this group is that
of abstinence from drugs/alcohol.
SOS a abstinence group,
meaning that one should be striving for total abstinence
from all addictive substances. There will be no promotion
of drug use in the meeting except for medical reasons not
getting high reasons.
Here's hoping that each
and every member will use this list for recovery and do so
with confidence that this SOS email meeting is safe and
confidential as possible.
