Dec. 3, 2015 – Readings in Recovery: The Eye Opener

The Eye Opener
Thursday, Dec. 3, 2015

I feel good today and I ought to. I slept like a baby last night, had a fine breakfast that I relished, the wife and kids kissed me as I left the house, I arrived at the office whistling and didn’t give a damn whether the boss was in a good humor or not. The work, too, seemed so much easier to do and the gang in the office seemed so much friendlier. It’s payday, too, and I drew a whole week’s pay and I haven’t borrowed a cent from a soul in the office. The whole envelope can go home unopened.

AA gave me all this. To me, an alcoholic, this is heaven.
