The Serenity Prayer

The Eye Opener
Thursday, Sept. 4, 2014

Too many of us ex-drunks expect too much when we get dried out. We, with characteristic impatience, see no reason why we can’t, overnight, regain all our lost ground and get the fifteen thousand dollar job that other sober men get.

Drying out only gives us the opportunity to realize our ambitions. Ability always has been, and always will be, a factor to be reckoned with. Getting sober won’t make a musician out of a boilermaker.
