Rationalization
"Maybe I can postpone dealing with some of my problems indefinitely."
Of course, this won't do. Such a bluffing of oneself will have to go the way
of many another pleasant rationalization. At the very least, we shall have
to come to grips with some of our worst character defects and take action
toward their removal as quickly as we can.

- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, p. 69

Thought to Ponder
Rationalizing is a device by means of which one protects his ego.
 

AA-related 'Alconym'
F E A R  =  Fighting Ego Against Reality.

Thanks to all of you for sharing so generously of your experience, strength and hope in carrying the AA message.
Grateful to serve,
