Richie shares his Experience, Strength and Hope. From gambling, to drugs to alcohol and back again, Richie describes the painful cycle of addiction; losing money during the week and drowning himself with alcohol on the weekends, round and around. Never feeling as though he belonged, constantly needing to escape from his emotions, and never being good enough, Richie struggled from the beginning, but has found hope, recovery and serenity in the 12 steps and its community.
