April 7, 2016 – The Eye Opener

The Eye Opener

Thursday, April 7, 2016 

Many of us, when we get over the Big Trouble – whiskey – sit back complacently and begin to enjoy our sobriety. 

To work the Program successfully, we must remember “First Things First” and also remember that whiskey is only the first. There are many other conflicts ahead and we must press on to successive victories over our many character defects to achieve a new way of living. 

The conflict will never end until you arrive at perfection or, still more probably, the grave. 

When you begin to rest complacently on your oars, you will find your boat is drifting downstream.
