Guest Intro:  

Put on your Irish listening ears and enjoy this amazing share in a cool Northern Ireland accent.  Ruairi O in his own words:  I got sober in 2001.  My first meeting was in the year 2000 at age 20. I'm still active in AA in Northern Ireland. I will be 20 years sober on May 10th, 2021 Surrender and personal transformation is linked to the spirit inherent in the principles of recovery I try to live by. I know I can admit defeat but still haven't surrendered, hence the need for a spiritual awakening. If I don't surrender I'm dead.

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.
