Justin B / Nikki M

This week’s meeting is entitled:  “Nikki M – How the Big Book Saved a Sex and Love Addict”

Nikki is one of the founding members of the Wednesday Night SLAA Big Book Meeting. Her program of recovery began by the Grace of God, the Power of 12 Steps and the fellowships of CA, AL-ANON and SLAA. Nikki's story is one of transformation and healing distinguished by her practical application of the Big Book's Twelve Steps and Traditions - as a program of daily living. 

 Awakened to the spirituality of life, Nikki has been empowered to rise up from the bottomless depths of despair, hopelessness, and futility. Today, she carries the message to countless rooms, sponsors both men and women and has the awareness that her life depends on working this program of action, every day. 

 Lifted by the Grace of God and propelled by the Power of Twelve Steps, Nikki works a rigorously honest program and enjoys freedom from the bondage of self, a full and grateful heart, and a spirit filled with hopes, dreams and possibilities.

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 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.  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.  This week’s meeting is entitled:  “Nikki M – How the Big Book Saved a Sex and Love Addict”
