Antonella - Steps 10, 11 and 12 - Living In The Solution - Meeting #27
Guest Intro and Bio: My name is Antonella. My parents separated when I was two years old. I had a very dysfunctional childhood which led to a life of unmanageability and maladaptive thinking acting in self will. Using drugs, alcohol, food and relationships for ease and comfort to cope. In the midst of an unhappy marriage my 14-year-old was expelled from school for using drugs. It was suggested to us to send my child to a treatment center. It was there, when I read the 12 Steps on the wall, that I realized I needed this help myself. This started my recovery journey and the qualification to several 12 step programs.
Welcome to the Reco12 Speaker Meeting. 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 meeting, 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. In order to ask questions, please type them in the Q and A link at the bottom of your Zoom window. If you are hearing this podcast recorded and would like to participate as a live audience member, or if you would like to be a guest speaker in a future meeting, please go to www.reco12.com to learn more and submit your email address there to receive weekly invitations or to submit to become a guest speaker.
When we line up a speaker for a meeting, we ask them to seek guidance on what and how to present so that they can reflect the light that they have been given. That light will inspire hope, meaning, worth, and growth in us, the listening audience.
