For the alcoholic these often lonely times, as we are forced from our friends, family, and work by this awful pandemic, can be devastating. A lifeline for many alcoholics over the years has been Alcoholics Anonymous, challenged in these times because in-person meetings are prohibited, but creative in developing hundreds of zoom and telephonic meetings.

Whats Up Newp’s Frank Prosnitz spoke with a recovering alcoholic who has become a spokesperson for AA in Rhode Island, and who shares not only his personal story, but talks of the challenges faced by so many who are battling their alcoholism every day.

Listen to “A convo with a spokesperson from Rhode Island Chapter of Alcoholics Anonymous” on Spreaker.
