Show Notes Chapter Markers

Deb in WV, her chosen topic is Intimacy with Self, Others, and Higher Power.  Here is a little about her, written in her own words:  In 2012, I went online to research fellowships that start with the letter “S” in order to help someone else… and found a pamphlet that is now called, “Intimacy Avoidance – Another Aspect of Sex Addiction.” Identifying with several characteristics from the list of symptoms in that pamphlet, I began attending SAA meetings with the focus of intimacy and sexual avoidance. Powerful changes in my life have occurred as a result. I am discovering what intimacy truly means and what it feels like, and I enjoy helping others on that same journey.

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, just to name a few.  

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 114.
