Happy New Year to all. In this episode Bill the Shirt talks with Don and Olis about his article in the January 2024 issue of Grapevine magazine. We learn how during his first encounter with a member of AA he found the first person ever who felt like he did. Bill learned that every drink, every mistake, and every regret had to happen in order for him to be low enough to accept the help of AA.
