AA Thought for the Day
October 12, 2022
When a drunk has a terrific hangover because he drank heavily yesterday,
he cannot live well today. But there is another kind of hangover which we
all experience whether we are drinking or not. That is the emotional hangover,
the direct result of yesterday's and sometimes today's excesses of negative
emotion—anger, fear, jealousy, and the like. If we would live serenely today
and tomorrow, we certainly need to eliminate these hangovers.
