Show Notes

Andrew:  is a 47 year old recovering sexoholic,  sober for 6 years. He joined the SA fellowship 11 years ago. He does his step work and has a sponsor and a few sponsees in SA.  He has also worked the steps in CODA.  He is clean from drugs for 23 years but has never joined a drug fellowship. Recently he started to do part-time work as an addiction therapist  in a small clinic that specializes in sex addiction.  In recovery he found God and God's guidance.  Thanks to His grace he has been married for 2 years to his lovely wife Sara who he first met in SA. This last year in July, their baby girl was born and right now he is living the life he had never expected to be possible.

Sara: is a 30 year old recovering sex addict, sober from lust thanks to God's grace for 4.5 years. She has worked the 12 step program with a sponsor and served as a sponsor to other female sex addicts in her fellowship. Since she is married to another recovering sex addict is a part of the S-Anon fellowship which helps her to address the patterns of codependency and heal from them as well. When she first joined the SA fellowship she was a broken woman. She felt like her life was over. She reached my lowest low and didn't expect there was any decent life possible after that. But God in His goodness made her recover rapidly and soon after, gave her a wonderful husband and best friend- Andrew. They have their highs and lows but mutual faith and the 12 steps principles keep them close and make their marriage flourish.

The Reco12 project which is 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. 

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 83.
