Anger is The Luxury of Normal Men

When we used alcohol or other drugs, most of us were angry hotheads. We thought we were right about absolutely everything. If we were proven wrong, we may have made life hell for everyone. People knew enough to stay away from us. In recovery, things will still go badly at times. We'll get hurt. And we may even get angry. If that happens we turn our anger to our Higher Power. In our groups, we share about what makes us angry. Then we leave the anger behind when the meeting is over.Move on.  We find that being at peace is now more important than getting even. Anger is the luxury of normal men.

Prayer for the Day: Higher Power, when I'm angry, help me slow down, Help me remember it's okay to be angry, but its not okay to abuse people.

Action for the Day: I will remember a time when I turned anger, into rage and hurt someone. I will also remember a time I was angry in a respectful way.
