The Eye Opener
Friday, Jan. 2, 2015

Probably in the history of the world no tyrant can be found who welded chains so strong upon his victims as did that “Ol’ Debil Rum.”

Even our most secret desires were controlled by his influence, and our families, our health and our very lives themselves were disregarded when opposed to the demands for a drink.

Fortunately for us in AA, we still had a freedom of choice of master and when we decided to “turn our will and our lives over to the care of God,” we accepted a new Master, one even more demanding than the first, but with this one vast difference – our chains were now bonds of love.
