...the number one offender...

"Resentment is the 'number one' offender. It destroys more alcoholics than anything else. From it stem all forms of spiritual disease, for we have been not only mentally and physically ill, we have been spiritually sick. When the spiritual malady is overcome, we straighten out mentally and physically...We went back through our lives. Nothing counted but thoroughness and honesty."

Alcoholics Anonymous, p.64-65
