Sept. 7, 2015 – Readings in Recovery: The Eye Opener

The Eye Opener
Monday, Sept. 7, 2015

Remember those days when you walked around with a chip on your shoulder – daring any and all the hostile world to knock it off? Well, they did knock it off, and you were beaten and kicked at every turn. You were constantly fighting alcohol, and people, and things.

The day finally came when you had had enough; you were beaten to your knees; the chips toppled from your shoulder when you surrendered, and your burdens became lighter at once. Actually you had only been fighting yourself all the time.
