Finding peace for once in a life of chaos

Unread postby Rickaddict » Sun Aug 07, 2011 5:03 pm

My name is Rick, i live just between trenton and philly pa. I have been an addict for many years, tried unsuccessfully to stay clean going to rehabs etc. Finally I have found my sobriety, sticking to the 12 steps and going to meetings are a great help, and on top of that, something that I am persuing is meditation. I have found the combination of meetings and the 12 steps in conjunction with meditation have greatly increased my sobriety. I am writing this just to tell others out there like me to give vippasana or any meditation a chance, you will open your mind to so much that you may not realize is in you. I have found life to be much smoother simply with the realization that i don't have to react to all my thoughts, fears, or cravings. a thought is simply a thought until you give it the energy to effect you. I'm not trying to force any type of religion on anyone, simply trying to give those of us struggling one more tool in the fight with ourselves. luck and love to all the suffering addicts.

Thanks Rick, meditation definitely helps, especially if you can clear your mind of all the stressors. Thanks for sharing!
