Gary, the Intergroup Manager from Austin, TX, talks to Don and Sam about his recovery. He started out with periodic relapses and describes the misery that goes with that. He had a moment of clarity after reaching a final bottom. In sobriety, Gary’s Ninth Step work led to him helping a person from his past. There’s a call on our Listener Feedback Line from Richard too.
