Mental Health on Facebook

Speaking personally, as addicted as I am to facebook, it makes me crazy and angry a lot of the time. I work hard to keep it a positive and inspirational place for myself. I post about all my large and small accomplishments, try to stay above bickering, and if I’m having a hard day I say so.

Recently I was talking about AA and a friend who is also in recovery said to me:
“I wish I had crap tons more friends in AA online!
It would be like AA all over my feed and remind me to work on that stuff”

Facebook AA Page: https://www.facebook.com/AlcoholicsAnonymous1935

I realized I already had this in place. I ‘hid’ my friends who post about awesome times drinking or post pictures of drinks – I can always unhide them when I am stronger. And I read people who inspire me.

I replied:
“I subscribe to the AA feed, and to inspirational speakers
so I do have lots of FB reminders to stay zen”
