Here is a little about Al, in his own words: I came to AA in January-February 1974. Have been sober since! I came into recovery from compulsive sexual behavior in both SA (Sexaholics Anonymous) and SAA (Sex Addict Anonymous) at the same time in October of 1994. After 3 years, I took a sabbatical to do some field research (relapse), but have been sober since January 15, 1998. After weighing the pro's and con's of my personal needs, SAA is the program that fit best for me and it is my home program. I currently attend the ARP program for maintenance. I sponsor extensively and make many contributions at the international level.
Welcome to Reco12. 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. We come together from all places, faiths ,and backgrounds to gain 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 the anon groups.
We invite recovering addicts with at least 1 year sobriety and who are actively working their recovery in their respective fellowships to share their experience, strength and hope on a live Zoom webinar, each Friday at 12:00 pm central time, for 20-25 minutes. Then, we, the live audience, get the opportunity to ask questions of the speaker for another 20-25 minutes.
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 108.
