Scotty, who got sober before he was old enough to drink, talks to Don and Sam about hitting his bottom while dry and learning the value of working AA’s 12-Step program. He started to listen, and the Steps brought him closer to God in many areas of his life. There’s also an Ask it Basket question about chips and medallions.
