Having practiced daily for about 3-4 years , meditating daily, keeping the 5 precepts doing retreats 3 or 4 times a year I have found my life to be more peaceful and manageable . Its the 5th precept that , although has made life easier has also made it less fun .Here is my question . How much damage would it do to my practice to have a couple of weeks break from the precepts . Flying through Amsterdam next week and a blowout of booze drugs and chicks would be kind of fun . It would only be a temporary lapse and once id sobered up would be back on the straight and narrow . What do you think ?
