Eye Opener (1950)
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 been searching for.
“How do you enter into all this? How do you cooperate with your
own rescue? You must simply be willing to let an outside message
reach the inside. You must no longer allow your habit-heavy mind
to remain as a blocking wall. So be aware of how you have been
unknowingly standing in the way of the rescuing realities.”

Why all this insistence that every A.A. must hit bottom first? The answer is that few people will sincerely try to practice the A.A. program unless they have hit bottom. For practicing A.A.’s remaining eleven Steps means the adoption of attitudes and actions that almost no alcoholic who is still drinking can dream of taking.
Hitting bottom opened my mind and I became willing to try something different. What I tried was A.A. My new life in the Fellowship was a little like learning how to ride a bike for the first time: A.A. became my training wheels and my supporting hand. It’s not that I wanted the help so much at the time; I simply did not want to hurt like that again. My desire to avoid hitting bottom again was more powerful than my desire to drink. In the beginning that was what kept me sober. But after a while I found myself working the Steps to the best of my ability. I soon realized that my attitudes and actions were changing—if ever so slightly. One Day at a Time, I became comfortable with myself, and others, and my hurting started to heal. Thank God for the training wheels and supporting hand that I choose to call Alcoholics Anonymous.

Lesson 16
I have no neutral thoughts.
The idea for today is a beginning step in dispelling the belief that your thoughts have no effect. Everything you see is the result of your thoughts. There is no exception to this fact. Thoughts are not big or little; powerful or weak. They are merely true or false. Those that are true create their own likeness. Those that are false make theirs.
There is no more self-contradictory concept than that of “idle thoughts.” What gives rise to the perception of a whole world can hardly be called idle. Every thought you have contributes to truth or to illusion; either it extends the truth or it multiplies illusions. You can indeed multiply nothing, but you will not extend it by doing so.

“The moving finger writes; and, having writ, moves on: 
nor all thy piety nor wit shall lure it back to cancel half a line, 
nor all thy tears wash out a word of it.
