Maggie P. shares with Don and Sam about her struggles to surrender to her alcoholism and to AA. She says she had to be brought to her knees, and that when she finally surrendered she was hanging on by a thread. Now she’s a meeting maker with over 17 years of sobriety, enjoying the “Grace of Drunks.” We also hear Listener Feedback from Tori, and her gratitude for the phrase “your own conception of God.”
