This Business of Resentment


“It is plain that a life

which includes deep resentment

leads only to futility and unhappiness.


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.”


BB p 66


What expectations ???

Expectations are resentments waiting to be born.

The alcoholic always has someone to blame.

If only they would have read my mind they

would have done what I expected of them

and since they didn’t do what I wanted

I’ll show them

I’ll cut off my nose to spite my face

and I will go out and tie on a really good drunk.

Today, keep your expectations to yourself and

expect not to pick up the first drink.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.


ME and the Boss


And, if no one has told you yet today,

God loves you and so do we.
