Harvey E - The Gifts of Recovery - Speaker Meeting #1

Welcome to the Reco12 Speaker Meeting.  We are an organization whose addictions include alcohol, drugs, lust and sex, food and gambling, just to name a few.  We come together from all places, faiths and backgrounds to learn the similarities of addiction and to gain tools and hope from others who are walking a similar path.  We invite recovering addicts with at least 1 year sobriety to share their experience, strength and hope on a live Zoom meeting, 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.    If you are hearing this podcast recorded and would like to participate as a live audience member, or if you would like to be a guest speaker in a future meeting, please go to www.reco12.com to learn more and submit your email address there to receive weekly invitations or to submit to become a guest speaker. 

Harvey E is a 65 year old Orthodox Jewish Dentist from Toronto, soon to celebrate 42 years of marriage to his wife, Sharon.  Proud PAPA to 18 grandchildren, soon to be 19.   Sober since January 7, 2014.  He came into the Sexaholics Anonymous rooms as a very low bottom, acting out with escorts sometimes multiple times a day.  Today, even with almost 6 and a half years of sobriety and recovery, Harvey works a very solid program, including Daily Sobriety renewals, prayer, meditation, daily maintenance steps, 10 through 12.  Harvey has spoken at international SA conventions, and his shares are available on podcasts such as The Journey Through Life Podcast and the Daily Reprieve Podcast.  He has been a very active member of the SA phone meeting community for years, moderating calls throughout the week and spearheading the use of Whatsapp groups to extend the fellowship of these meetings 24/7.  Over the last year, he has become an active participant in SAL zoom meetings.   Harvey has chosen to have contributions from this speaker meeting go to SAL. It can be found at www.sal12step.org.  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.  Or, if you use Venmo, you can also contribute there.  Our handle is @Reco-Twelve. When you contribute, please specify the meeting number.  This is meeting number 1.  

 Since I met Harvey a little over 6 months ago, he has quickly become one of my best friends in recovery and has changed the way I look at my relationship with God.  I love this man and I think you will learn to love him too.

If we didn’t get to your question or if you have other questions, please go to https://www.reco12.com/forum and join in our community and ask those questions and answer others’ questions that will come up.  I invite the audience to come back next week.  If you have not yet gone to www.reco12.com and submitted your email address (you only need to do it once), please get on the invitation list, so you can join us live, each Friday at 12:00 noon, central time. 

Outro music is “Standing Still” by Cory Ellsworth and Randy Kartchner, performed by Mike Eldred and Elizabeth Wolfe.  This song, and/or the entire soundtrack for  “Crosses:  A Musical of Hope”, can be purchased here:  https://music.apple.com/us/album/crosses-musical-hope-by-cory/528476262
