Sloan discusses finally surrendering and being relieved of the exhausting efforts to control her drinking. On the “Listener Feedback Line” we hear from Gerry and Lisa. In a special added section at the end, Sloan discusses with Don and Olis how the Steps have helped her heal from sexual abuse (this section may be difficult for some listeners).
