Let’s introduce our guest speaker for today, Amy B.

Amy is a recovered food addict and-Anon and has been working recovery with varying degrees of success since April 2013.  It took a major relapse to humble her to the point of complete honesty about her problem.  Hitting bottom when she thought she knew all there was to know about recovery was baffling and confusing to her.  God waited patiently for her to run out of her own plans and designs and then led her to ARP (The Addiction Recovery Program of her church), a fellowship which she said would never work for her.  She’s been happily working the steps of recovery every day since September 2018.

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.  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.

Thanks again, Amy!  That was a great Reco12 weekly speaker meeting for all addicts and those wanting to learn more about addiction and the recovery therefrom.  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.
