Step 8 is: “Made a list of all persons we have harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.”
Here is a little about Debbie B in her own words:
“My name is Debbie and I am an alcoholic. I found recovery in April 13, 2007 and have stayed since then, one day at a time. I work with many women in the program, as well as my sponsor. I do service work and lots of meetings. I try always to stay in the middle.
I am so very grateful to so many people. I love AA. I hope all of you choose to stay in recovery.
Reco12 is an organization with the mission of learning and sharing the similarities of addiction of all kinds and gaining and sharing tools and hope from others who are walking a similar path. Speakers from our past meetings have represented many fellowships and identify with addictions with such variety of alcoholism, drugs, food, sex, gambling, theft, just to name a few.
Each Friday at noon central time, we hold a live, lunch-hour speaker meeting with a recovering addict from anywhere on Earth, pertaining to any or no faith tradition, and with any background, who shares their experience, strength, and hope on a specified recovery topic of their choice. For the 12 week period that we started on March 4, 2022 through May 20th, 2022, we are focusing on each of the 12 Steps of Recovery.
Reco12 is a self-supporting service and we appreciate your help in keeping it that way. We gratefully accept contributions to help cover the costs of the Zoom platform, podcast platform, web hosting, and administrative costs. To contribute, you can go to https://www.reco12.com/support or you can click the link to PayPal (https://www.paypal.me/reco12) in the chat of the live meeting. When you contribute, please specify the meeting number. This is meeting number 98.
