CoDA Group Representative List: Request for Personal Stories of Recovery

From: "CoDA Group Representative List" <>
Date: June 4th 2022

Hello Group Service Representatives,

For the first time, the committee that brings you Weekly Reading and Meeting in Print is reaching out specifically to the GSR email list because we need stories from CoDA old-timers and trusted servants, like you.

We are seeking submissions that balance the pain and desperation felt before taking Step 1 with the experience, strength and hope of recovery. It’s important that stories are authentic, honest and stay in alignment with the Twelve Traditions of Co-Dependents Anonymous.

For authors who are unsure where to start, we can offer writing prompts upon request. And one does not need to be a professional writer. Our editors touch up grammar and punctuation while respecting the author’s message and voice.

Everyone who has carried the message in a meeting also has a story that can help a fellow codependent through Co-NNections. Over 13,000 subscribers receive our email reminders and updates. Sharing your experience, strength and hope may help thousands of codependents who are still suffering.

In addition to stories of self discovery and personal growth, we’re encouraging trusted servants throughout the Fellowship to submit content about healthy meetings and how being of service has helped in their recovery.

Thank you for considering this request.


If you are interested in submitting a recovery story (200-2000 words), please don’t hesitate to send an email to or visit .

In Service,

The CoDA Co-NNections Committee (Weekly Reading and Meeting in Print)

Thank you very much to our CoDA trusted servants who signed up for this email list!

Our hope is that Group Reps will share these messages with their home meetings, and that intergroup members will share them with each other as well as their meetings.
