Two military women, Dee and Niquie, share with Don and Sam about hiding their drinking and the spiritual hole in the soul that brought them into AA. There’s also some great tips on preparing to attend drinking events. Tracy and Jeniffer call in to the podcast, and Gary sends in an email. There’s also a bonus segment this week: #Heardinameeting.
