The Eye Opener
Wednesday, March 8, 2017
 
So you have dried up – you’re off the stuff. That’s fine, but many of us have had to face the ridicule of our former drinking pals and, unfortunately, some of us couldn’t take it.

Who was the ringleader of that jeering section? The chances are he was the guy who needed the program as badly as you did. He didn’t want you sober because you were frequently worth the price of a bottle. He had no logical argument to use, so he resorted to ridicule.

Remember that he who laughs at you tonight, tomorrow morning you can kid Hell out of.
