AA Thought for the Day
March 9, 2019
Nor were we ever skillful in separating justified from unjustified anger.
As we saw it, our wrath was always justified. 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.

We discover the fatal nature of our situation.

Grateful to serve,
