Self Justification
First off, they can be told that the majority of A.A. members have
suffered severely from self-justification during their drinking days.
For most of us, self-justification was the maker of excuses; excuses,
of course, for drinking, and for all kinds of crazy and damaging
conduct. We had made the invention of alibis a fine art.

- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, (Step Four) p. 46

Thought to Ponder . . .
The first step in overcoming mistakes is to admit them.

AA-related 'Alconym'
J A D E  =   Justify, Argue, Defend, or Explain.
