21. About this journal...it seems to violate the purpose of this group

Purpose of this group........

"A supportive resource for people recovering from addictions (drugs, alcohol, over-eating, gambling, etc.) which negatively affect all areas of their lives, and for friends and family of recovering or active addicts. "

A close look at the comments and discussion seem to point to a series posts which violate this principle..Indeed it seems to me that this is about a self analysis in the writers view of what is and is not an addiction and his view. It goes against the purpose that this is for recovery and not deep analysis of chemical and non chemical roots for addiction.

This group is not about deep brain analysis, but for people who are recovering...We rarely talk about.."self control" as a means of recovery..I have been a "food addict" for a very long time...I have been in Overeaters Anonymous for over 35 years. Sadly, I see very little about recovery in this series of posts...for friends and family of recovering or active addicts.....or for the still struggling addict.. Deep analysis of "self control" is not a goal of recovery.
