& Non-Religious Freedom
I know that in a recovery group there will be people with differing views on religion.
There will be people with different views on politics. To keep our focuses on recovery and keep our religious and political views intact, free from criticism or to have members trying to convert us to their religion, or politics. It is in the best
interest of the group and each of us that our religious or non religious beliefs be expressed with like minded people out side of
There will be no promotion
of drug use.
Except for medical reasons. Not for getting high reasons. If you are in recovery for alcohol and had no problem with pot, don't start using pot.
This is an Abstinence Group.
I will repeat SOS is an Abstinence Group.
We are free to attend other support groups.
attending other support groups in no way will affect my standing with SOS.
