Thank God for My Despair
IT IS AMAZING and a little depressing to see so many of our members drive themselves like madmen for perfect peace of mind and absolute serenity. Bags under their eyes, frowns on their foreheads--driving, driving. They act as though absolute peace of mind were the answer to life. Where do they get such a ridiculous idea? The Big Book doesn't mention it. Neither does Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions. I can't find it in our other literature, either.
