Harvey E has fast become one of my best friends. He is a sexaholic with nearly 7 years sobriety. Since he and I first met on December 10, 2019, via Zoom, for an interview I did with him for the Journey Through Life Podcast, he has been instrumental in the current phase of my recovery and in the idea and initial development of the Reco12 Speaker Meeting. He was the first guest speaker for this, the Reco12 project back on June 19, 2020. I am grateful that he was able and willing to fill in this week for a spot that unexpectedly came open. Harvey will be speaking to us today on a catchy title that I identify with all too well. It is, “I’ve Got This… Oops!” I am looking forward to this talk and think it will be very helpful to many.
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.
