Step 11 is: “Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.”
Here is a little about Nicki M(squared): Nicki M (squared) is new to these recovery rooms. Before September 2021, she was an undiagnosed addict for nearly 30 years before finding the 12-step Big Book Sponsorship lifestyle. Nicki flew through the 12-steps and began sponsoring women right away. She continues to do her best to show her children and her Self to do the next right thing. Nicki believes deeply in the power of prayer and meditation, and found out her yogi life prior to these rooms aligns with recovery beautifully. Without questioning how she found Spiritual Gangsters fellowship, Nicki M (squared) strives every moment to live these steps, this simple but not always easy recipe. She is forever grateful for finding her God, the pioneers of AA, the ZOOM and F2F meetings, her service work, sponsees, children, beautifully healthy relationship, and the list goes on. It truly works, if we work it.
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, co-dependency, and several anon groups, 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.
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 101.
