David G from Oklahoma: He is a Sober member of AA since 08-08-1994 having had a life changing spiritual experience in 1995 as a result of the 12 steps as outlined in our Big Book, he learned that he had no idea how grow & develop with it. He soon found that yesterday’s miracle wasn’t sufficient for today! Other things begin to compete for that experience & they won out. In 2019 he reached an emotional bottom in sobriety. He learned that he suffered from a spiritual illness brought by a human condition. self. He was freed in 2019 & has walked emotionally free ever since! His quote that this talk is based on is found on page 53 of the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous, 'Had we not been brought to where we stood by a certain kind of faith?'
Welcome to Reco12. 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.
