Pete B in his own words: I’ve been in 12 step recovery since age 22, continually abstinent from all mind and mood altering substances since 1980, at the age 25. I’ve had a fascinating journey that’s taken me through about 10 different recovery fellowships (NA, AA, Addicts Anonymous, All Addicts Anonymous, Sex Addicts Anonymous, Al-Anon, Adult Children of Alcoholics, Freedom From Fear, Refuge Recovery, and Recovery Dharma). I got to help N.A. create its Basic Text on Recovery early on and established several N.A. Newsletters. More recently I was the editor for an AA newsletter. Today I find myself back in N.A., where my recovery journey began. Since the beginning of the pandemic, I have found myself privileged to actively sponsor addicts all over the world through the 12 Steps, including 6 different countries and 7 different states in this country. I’ve probably learned more about sponsorship in the past 3 years than I had in the previous 39.
Reco12 is an organization with the mission of learning and sharing the similarities of addiction of all kinds and the similarities of recovery from all afflictions and addictions, and gaining and sharing tools and hope from others who are trudging this road. We are an open meeting for ALL, no matter your life experiences, faith traditions, nationality, or background.
