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 and who are actively working their recovery in their respective fellowships to share their experience, strength and hope as our guest speakers on a live Zoom meeting, each Friday at 12:00 pm central time.  That person will speak for 20-25 minutes on a recovery topic that is near and dear to their heart.  Then, we, the live audience, get the opportunity to ask questions of the speaker for another 20-25 minutes.  In order to ask questions, please type them in the Q and A link at the bottom of your Zoom window.  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.  

 Reco12 is an ad-free 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.  The guest speaker also chooses a fellowship or recovery-centered organization to which the majority of contributions from that week’s meeting will be donated to.  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 2. 

Our speaker has been a member of Cocaine Anonymous since November 21, 2003. As a Big Book Sponsor, he has worked with all kinds of addicts from around the world. He facilitates a Twelve Steps in four hours workshop and has carried the Twelve Step message of recovery to some 2200 suffering addicts over the past 16 years. His recovery message, "It only takes a day to learn the Twelve Step program and the rest of your life to practice it.”  He is currently the archivist for the Southern Ontario Area of Cocaine Anonymous and the Archive Chair for C.A. World Services out of Los Angeles, California, which, by the way, is the organization that Cameron has chosen to have contributions go to. ... please welcome our speaker, Cameron F. from Toronto, Ontario Canada.

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.
