"Ed Storti came to my house with several of my friends. They had approached me many times with their concern regarding my “problem.” I had lost any hope or desire to stop drinking. Their support along with Ed’s “magic” convinced me to go to treatment. That was 25 years ago. Thanks, Ed, you saved my life."
