Martin Nicolaus to be Keynote Speaker at Annual Meeting
Martin Nicolaus, one of LifeRing’s founders and its only leader until two years ago, will be the keynote speaker at the LifeRing Annual Meeting on May 12th at the LGBT Center in San Francisco. His talk is entitled, ‘Toward a Medical Model of Addiction Recovery, or: Is it Time to Occupy Recovery?” The talk, which promises to be lively, is scheduled to begin at 1:30 p.m. All are invited and admission will be free, although contributions will be much appreciated.
I was trying to remember the three points about how LR is like the 99% against the 12-Step 1%. (1) Bill Wilson was related to Rockefeller who helped by donating some startup money and PR for his book. (2) The alcohol industry created the disease of alcoholism to divert blame from their product. (3) ???
How did the conference go…. hope you all didnt fall out with each other… 🙂
All was sweetness and light! I’ll post at least a brief summary ASAP.
A big thank you to Martin for a great talk and great follow-on discussion! For many of us, reading Empowering Your Sober Self was a huge recovery milestone, and it was nice to hear and meet the man behind the written words. 🙂
Wish you to be with you but it’s not possible.we like so much the book “Empowering your sober self” by Martin Nicolaus and we use it in Madagascar.Thank you again
Pray for all of you, we can.
