Feb. 24, 2016 – The Eye Opener

The Eye Opener
Wednesday, Feb. 24, 2016
We alcoholics know that one drink is too much and a barrel isn’t enough. That first drink starts the compulsion to drink.

Suppressing desires can become a habit just as their satisfaction does. Each time we Say “NO,” we weaken the old habit and strengthen the new.

The efforts to satisfy our desires led us to the excesses that brought about our alcoholism. So let us follow the advise of John Stuart Mill and “learn to seek our happiness by limiting our desires, rather than attempting to satisfy them.”
