The Eye Opener

Thursday, Feb. 16, 2017

Remember in Step Nine we were told to make direct amends wherever possible, but this generous principle should extend further. We should endeavor to regulate our conduct so as never to intentionally hurt anyone.

Because we don’t drink gives us no license to embarrass our host by telling the other guests what fools they are or what a great guy we are because we quit.

It gives us no right to hold your sobriety as a club over the head of friend wife and make her accede to our every whim on the threat that we will go out and hang one on.

AA gives us no new liberties, only new responsibilities.
