Feb. 15, 2024 - Readings in Recovery: The Eye Opener


The Eye Opener

Thursday, Feb. 15, 2024

When we were drinking, we all had an interest and it was all contained in the shortest word in the English language — I. Our conversations always started with, “I need,” “I want,” “I said,” etc. No wonder people crossed the street when they saw us coming. Our conversations were as obnoxious as our breath.

Take note of the older men on the Program; their conversations are seldom about themselves except as they fit into the other fellow’s problems. It is no accident that they are popular with the group for they never bore you with themselves, but instead they talk about your most popular subject — You.
