Sifting through the stacks of new books at the library (including mine), I picked up a copy of "The Impulse Society: America in the Age of Instant Gratification." I picked it up on impulse. In the beginning pages it states that we "prize immediate rewards and ignore future costs."
Sounds like my entire addiction to alcohol. Times thirty (years).
But I'm reading this book by Paul Roberts through the eyes of recovery. My reflex now is nearly automatically in the direction of recovery.
The right impulse.
Feel my journey to now.
