Guest Intro and Bio in Eric’s own words: Today I celebrate my 2 year sobriety birthday! I’ve been a Sexaholic forever, and finally, two years ago, I was finally ready to admit to myself that my life was a mess. My addiction was taking over all aspects of my life and I saw a vision of everything I claimed to care about slipping away. I came into SA on the heels of an emotional affair that ended in 2019. I truly thought at the time that I was going to have to suffer with this affliction for the rest of my life. SA and my HP saved my life. The thing I craved most and never got as a child was emotional connections. I’ve found the Real Connection here in the rooms of SA and it’s given me the tools to use to make those connections in all aspects of my life.
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.
