A true addict, Daniel has addicted to anything that is possible to be addicted to - often cross addicting several times a day in active addiction.
Some of his top plates include sex, relationships, marijuana, cocaine, workaholism. gambling, codependency and a healthy dose of anonism alongside what he calls anonanonism - which is being an anon to anons.
Daniel has taken recovery very seriously (after taking his addiction seriously for many years) - working the steps several times with different focuses and being heavily involved in sponsorship and service at multiple levels of the service structure.
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.
Normally, 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. Today, we are obviously recording on Wednesday instead, and it is for good reason. We will go back to Fridays next week. 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.
