Olis talks to Don and Sam about how alcohol was love at first sip at a very young age, but then it stopped working. There’s Ask-it-Basket questions from Lou about the terms “Recovered” and “Recovering” and one about Anonymity. Spencer has a history question about the Responsibility Statement, and we get to hear Bill W. lead the 1965 International Convention in Toronto in reciting.
