Let’s introduce our guest speaker for today, Bill M.
Here is Bill M in his own words: I got booze sober in 1987. Had what is probably considered the ‘pink cloud’ phase for a few years but at about 4-5 years started to feel not right. I struggled for the next 5 years with mild anxiety but by 10 years sober, I suffered from severe anxiety which led to a nervous breakdown at 15 years sober. At that low point, I met a man who took me through the steps as set forth in the Big Book and am living anxiety free since.
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. 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 to learn more and submit your email address there to receive weekly invitations or to submit to become a guest speaker.
