SEVEN Lancashire members of Alcoholics Anonymous will share their experiences on a special radio programme on Wednesday.

They include a retired fireman, a musician, a nurse, a former airline stewardess, and a former semi-professional footballer.

The seven will feature in a three-hour broadcast on BBC Radio Lancashire presented by Garry Scott from 7pm to 10pm.

Also in the studio will be clinical psychologist and addiction specialist Dr Mani Mehdikhana.

An East Lancashire AA spokesman said: “Our members will be talking about their own real life experience of alcoholism, how they finally found recovery, and what it’s like to be living sober one day at a time.

“Anyone who thinks they have a drink problem or knows someone who may have should listen to this programme.

“If they want to find out further information on alcoholism and the work of AA they can ring our North West helpline on 0161 839 2881 or go to the Alcoholics Anonymous website.”

AA holds meetings across East Lancashire including in Accrington, Blackburn, Darwen. Burnley, Nelson, Colne and Rawtenstall.

There will be a wide range of music in the show including tracks picked by its AA guests.
