Tonight, the topic is
Recovery in the Digital Age
When we use digital media, we are responsible for our own anonymity
and for protecting that of others. When we post, text, or blog, we should
consider whether we are publishing at the public level. When we break
our anonymity in these forums, we may inadvertently break the anonymity
Conference approved literature clearly defines how to protect anonymity. Conference approved literature states:
A.A.s do not publicly identify themselves as A.A. members using their full names and/or full-face photos.
What technology tools do you use in recovery?
How does it help?
How do you use it?
How do you get it?
