AA Thought for the Day
January 5, 2022
Futility and Unhappiness
It is plain that a life which includes deep resentment leads
only to futility and unhappiness. To the precise extent that
we permit these, do we squander the hours that might have
been worth while. But with the alcoholic, whose hope is the
maintenance and growth of a spiritual experience, this business
of resentment is infinitely grave. We found that it is fatal.
- Alcoholics Anonymous, (How It Works) p. 66
