I don't get offended by the religion spoken here or the higher power reference. And we all know if there is good there is also evil, so that doesn't offend me either. I do believe that many in recovery have experienced their higher power or their families have to help them cope. I, for one, am grateful to all of you for reinforcing my own faith. I hope that we can all support each other in whatever we bring to the table here because we all certainly need love and support and non-judgement.
