AA Thought for the Day
August 25, 2018
Anger, that occasional luxury of more balanced people, could keep
us on an emotional jag indefinitely. These emotional “dry benders”
often led straight to the bottle. Other kinds of disturbances—jealousy,
envy, self-pity, or hurt pride—did the same thing.
A spot-check inventory taken in the midst of such disturbances
can be of very great help in quieting stormy emotions.
