That , we think. is the root of our troubles. Driven by a hundred forms of fear, self-delusion, self-seeking, and self-pity, we step on the toes of our fellows and they retaliate. Sometimes they hurt us, seemingly without provocation, but we invariably find that at some time in the past we have made decisions based on self which later placed us in a position to be hurt...Above everything, we alcoholics must be rid of this selfishness. We must or it kills us!

Alcoholics Anonymous, p.62
