Stormy Emotions
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.

- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, (Step Ten) p. 90

Thought to Ponder . . .
Am I doing to others as I would have them do to me—today?
