July 3, 2015 – Readings in Recovery: The Eye Opener

The Eye Opener

Friday, July 3, 2015

In our drinking days, there was no humor in the world except that doubtful brand we heard around the bars. It is certainly true that we took our insignificant affairs and our ridiculous selves mostly seriously.

In AA, when we became mentally sober, we not only acquired a sense of humor, but we were even able to laugh at ourselves. We can now accept the criticism of others with a greater degree of patient good humor, we have learned that the best way to confound our critic is to laugh off his attack with good-humored tolerance.
