DUKKHA (DISTRESS) / TANHA (CRAVING) / UPEKKHA (PERSPECTIVE)
“If you feel anxious or unhappy, you know you can wait for this to pass – you do not need to fix the anxiety or the unhappiness immediately by taking drugs or alcohol. When some situation does not go the way you want it to go, you do not feel powerless or aggressive and turn to intoxicants, but you look at what you can learn from this or how you could understand it in a different way”~ Source: “Let Go : A Buddhist Guide to Breaking Free of Habits” : Martine Batchelor
