The Eye Opener

Tuesday, April 11, 2017

We alcoholics have learned that if we fight liquor, we are bound to lose. We always have. Our only hope is a complete abandonment of any ideas that we might have once entertained that we can drink. We must get sober and learn to like it. We should throw ourselves into all group activities, make our friends from the membership, read all AA literature and other spiritually inspiring books we can get, brush up on our praying. 

As you practice this, you will find that whiskey will get further and further from your minds and, when you do think of it, you will regard it as a beverage for some guys but poison for yourself.
