Random Big Book 'Alcoholics Anonymous'

ACCEPTANCE WAS THE ANSWER – The physician wasn't hooked, he thought–he just prescribed drugs medically indicated for his many ailments. Acceptance was his key to liberation. But then as I drank more and more, the alcohol seemed to affect my vision: Instead of continuing to see what was good about my wife, I began to see her defects. And the more I focused my mind on her defects, the more they grew and multiplied. Every defect I pointed out to her became greater and greater. Each time I told her she was nothing, she receded a little more into nowhere. The more I drank, the more she wilted. pp. 418-419
