March 12, 2017 - Readings in Recovery: The Eye Opener

The Eye Opener
Sunday, March 12, 2017
 
The mind of man is unable to approximate the untold millions of dollars that have been spent by us alcoholics in that futile chase after happiness, only to find that what we purchased was not happiness but misery, want, illness and despair.

By calling off the hunt, by quitting our quest for fun that we had always believed hid in the bottom of a bottle, we found happiness. The price of this happiness was only that we give happiness to others, and we learned that the more we gave, the more we had. We could eat our cake and have it, too.
