The only issue being that many people in recovery don't want to be identified.   That's what I am trying to figure out -- the logistics of creating a safe space for people in recovery.

But that's the point - to make a safe-place by taking over a studio on a regular basis...

For some people, anonymity is required in order for them to feel safe. ETA: Which means that advertising would have to be worded carefully or conveyed through anonymous-friendly means.

Note:  This probably needs another thread if you're comfortable with that, cha.

Idea: Create a safe place logo for people in recovery, similar to the one that the GLBT community has had for twenty years or so.   Then dances or other events that are alcohol and drug free and supportive of a recovery lifestyle could advertise using the logo and post the logo.  Anyone could attend without identifying themselves as in recovery.

Just a thought.


Let me know if you're okay with starting a separate thread,cha. If so,I will.Cool

Seriously.  The title of this thread is ambiguous.

What are you meant to be doing right now instead of posting in PDO is what was meant.  Nothing too philosophical about that.

What are you meant to be doing as your life's purpose is what we're talking about now.  Those are two very different things.  The latter is very philosophical.   Maybe we need a new thread (in mind growing?)  I'd love to talk about that and support others in pursuit of their dreams.  Or we could just talk about it here ...   whatever y'all prefer. Cool
