Early in my sobriety, I was quick to pour out my heart at the group level
and experienced some unexpected push back from members. I thought
“honesty” was to permeate every area of my life, especially when
sharing at the group level.
My sponsor explained that yes, honesty was an
essential part of sobriety, but that discretion was to be practiced
with as much vigor as well.
With the speed and permanence of today’s electronic age, we as members
of Alcoholics Anonymous must always remember the importance of
discretion not only when sharing at meetings but also when posting on social networking sites.
