Nikki is one of the founding members of the Wednesday Night SLAA Big Book Meeting and the Spiritual Gangsters groups. 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.
Reco12 is an organization with the mission of learning and sharing the similarities of addiction of all kinds and gaining and sharing tools and hope from others who are walking a similar path. Speakers from our past meetings have represented many, many fellowships and identify with addictions with such variety of alcohol, drugs, food, sex, gambling, theft, just to name a few.
Each Friday at noon central time, we hold a live, lunch-hour speaker meeting with a recovering addict from anywhere on Earth, pertaining to any or no faith tradition, and with any background, who shares their experience, strength, and hope on a specified recovery topic of their choice. They share for 20-25 minutes on that topic, and then the live audience gets the opportunity to ask questions of that speaker for another 20-25 minutes.
Reco12 is a self-supporting service and we appreciate your help in keeping it that way. We gratefully accept contributions to help cover the costs of the Zoom platform, podcast platform, web hosting, and administrative costs. To contribute, you can go to https://www.reco12.com/support or you can click the link to PayPal (https://www.paypal.me/reco12) in the chat of the live meeting. When you contribute, please specify the meeting number. This is meeting number 82.
