Speaker Meetings Online

Hi- I'm Toby and I am an incurable speaker meeting junky.

I love great speakers, especially funny ones but anything AA and interesting/informative is cool with me. I have a collection of CDs that fill a wallet to get me through my long drive home or the days I can't make a meeting and feel like I should. I also have a bunch saved to my harddrive on my office comp and my laptop.

My favorite thus far is John Larroquette anywhere and anytime. What a great speaker and he makes you laugh. I need to laugh sometimes.

Anyhow- I found these online and free:

http://www.aaprimarypurpose.org/speakers.htm

And I also have some Buddhist ones if anyone is interested:

Kevin Griffen is the author of

ONE BREATH AT A TIME
Buddhism and the Twelve Steps


http://www.kevingriffin.net/talks_text.htm

and Noah LEvine is the author of Dharma Punx and Against the Stream.

http://www.dharmapunx.com/htm/mp3.htm

(Scroll down on Naoh Levines site.)

You can purchase all kinds of talks at http://www.sobrietytalks.com/ for $5.00 each. They have all kinds of CDs including some really popular ones by anonymous people, some popular sets about the big book and the steps, and some by famous people (I really like the famous people ones because there are a couple people I admire and it's nice to know that they are human and that I'm right there with them, being fallible and getting by.)

There are a ton here:

http://www.xa-speakers.org/pafiledb.php?action=category&id=1

Hope someone who is having trouble getting themselves to a meeting can check these out and make a little headway. There are probably more- I have only googled a couple items (I googled "AA speaker MP3" for that last link) and I have never checked Limewire or any of those resources- I'm sure there's more stuff out there.

Have fun- Toby

I find a lot of dead links and pages removed, but there's a few gems in there if you look.

I'm also a little wary of downloading a virus. If you don't have up to date software please don't download stuff- it's really a bad idea. If you have up to date virus software it's still a good idea to scrutinize the sites you are downloading from. I have not personally downloaded from these last three sites or the last one on the post above as I just found them.

Hi Toby,

Thanks for those. I already have a few of the links, but I'll be checking out the rest over the next day or two.

I agree with you about being careful and wary of downloading a virus. We just don't need it. I keep my anti-virus software right up to date and I also use McAfee SiteAdvisor which I find really helpful when searching out new sites.

http://www.xa-speakers.org/pafiledb.php?action=category&id=1 is absolutely fine and safe to use and there are some super shares available.

Take care,

Carol

 John Larroquette is available at Sobrietytalks.com in the "famous people" section. He and Anthony Hopkins are two of my favorite "famous speakers" thus far. (though I'm presently waiting for the book "Playing It Straight: Personal Conversations on Recovery, Transformation and Success" which has a bunch of interviews by a bunch of interesting people with familiar names. (Among them David Dodd, Wayne Dyer, Earnie Larsen, Wayne Dyer, Larry Gatlin, Gregory Harrison, Mike Binder, Doug Fieger, John Hiatt, Nils Lofgren, Anthony Kiedis, China Kantner, Lou Gossett, Jr. , Dr. Steven Chatoff, Tai Babilonia, Louis Gossett, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, Dennis Hopper, Leo Booth)

In this groundbreaking work, rock-n-roll writer and critic David Dodd presents some of the most powerful interviews with musicians, entertainers and athletes you will ever read. Shared here in their own words-and in many cases for the first time-are tales of life away from the spotlight and the glamour, of real people fighting the pain and desperation caused by addiction. Their candid descriptions of life before and after recovery-and their even greater achievements since becoming clean and sober-will leave an indelible impression on you.


The rest of the introduction (which sold me on the book) found here:
