Dara L is a recovered anorexic, bulimic, compulsive overeater, sex and love addict and a grateful member of OA and SLAA. She has hit many spectacular bottoms in her lifetime and has finally found recovery through surrendering all aspects of her addictions. Her story offers a powerful example of how not all addicts are served by treating their addictions in the order that they kill you. In her case, it was treating two addictions simultaneously that enabled her to discover the unconditional love of a Higher Power.
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.
