“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Life by itself is so intoxicating , the need of further intoxications , makes the problem at hand that much more difficult to handle.

There was a time once when i used to enjoy having the best of wine and drinks with friends , cannabis included . The happiness of getting a chivas and sharing a glass or two with my Father , i used to think of as a very refined living !

That era has long died , and when i look back , the feeling of happiness of having left it all behind is indescribable.........

I admit, I used to enjoy a joint or two...but still, the few times I came near to jhana (as I understand it), the peace and joy I felt in those meditations, was far better than ANY intoxicant ever gave me. In any case, I found that weed interfered with being fully emotionally available for those I love, and that was the main reason I abandoned it.
Manas
Then the Blessed One, picking up a tiny bit of dust with the tip of his fingernail, said to the monk, "There isn't even this much form...feeling...
perception...fabrications...consciousness that is constant, lasting, eternal, not subject to change, that will stay just as it is as long as eternity."
