Dorothy is a long-time friend of the show with decades of sobriety under her belt. She comes back today to provide some tips and motivation for the recovering addict who finds himself surrounded by the ceremonial toasts traditional for New Year’s Eve. She recounts how she would spend the holiday alone in her apartment, drinking herself into oblivion. Dorothy talks about how going to parties where nobody drank always helped her, and that many AA or other fellowship groups hold New Year’s Eve events to accommodate those who need the extra help to continue their recovery on such a holiday. Dorothy says any city in the world will hold meetings and even U.S. Embassies will help American citizens abroad find a meeting. And what else, for those on holiday cruises, the ship’s purser holds a room to be used as a meeting place.
