Kelly T - From Chronic Despair to Hope - Meeting 49
May 14, 2021 Episode 49
Justin B / Kelly T

Kelly T is a recovering addict and alcoholic who spent more than 27 years cross-addicted to drugs, alcohol, and food. At the worst of her addictions she lost her children, ended up homeless and supported her heroin and meth habit with prostitution. Thanks to her Higher Power, 12-step recovery, and the fellowship of the rooms she has been given a new life and has been sober for over 4 years.

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 webinar, 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 meeting in recorded podcast form and would like to participate as a live audience member in the future, please go to www.reco12.com to learn more and submit your email address there to receive weekly invitations.
