Robert D - Connection, Correction, Direction - Meeting #25
Robert D is a member of Alcoholics Anonymous living in Turkey. He is sober since 2015, Robert is a Dutch citizen, 52 years of age, master in tax law, former senior executive at Fortune 500 group, father of three children with whom contact has been lost for years. He ended up homeless, institutionalized and practically-speaking, broke from his rebellion against God. A man who fought what the program asks, who was eventually beaten into a state of reasonableness - finding himself relieved of a mental disorder and in a cure for alcoholism through the practice of AA's clear-cut set of directions.
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.
