Be a LifeRing Convenor!

 


"I convene a LifeRing meeting because I feel better about myself, my day, and my life after a meeting. It helps me in my recovery."

- Mike M., SoCal Convenor   


 

LifeRing is recruiting new convenors to help people seeking recovery support

 

Do you remember when you first started out on your Recovery Journey?

I was scared. I was embarrassed. I was ashamed. But I was also lonely. None of my buddies had any idea how hard I was struggling. Because, of course,LIfeRing Connections Are Straight From the Heart they could quit if they really wanted to. I needed to talk with someone who understood, who shared my goals and who would allow me the space to explore my own pathway to sobriety. 

I dipped my toes into several recovery groups, but nothing really clicked. I was made to feel even worse about myself while I was working so hard on becoming better. Then I found LifeRing. It was love at first meeting!
