Allie C. talks to Don and Sam about how a forced drying out period during a court program helped the fog lift, which helped her denial to lift too. In AA, Allie met a group of people who just wanted to help her, but didn’t want anything in return. Allie also talks about the value of having a sponsor and the rewards of being a sponsor. There’s a bonus segment at the end of this podcast where problems other than alcohol are discussed — for those who may identify.
