New member here wondering if anyone has a saying or thought that helps keep them on the path when craving sneaks up on you.
My drugs of choice are sugar, procrastination, and pornography. I understand that my attachment to these highs and distractions are the problem.
The thing that often makes me slip in the moment is knowing that life is finite, so why not just enjoy the highs and take the lows as a necessary cost? The only answer I have is a notion that my life will be happier, that I will get more out of my finite time, if I let these things go. But that is only a notion I have, not necessarily one of actual experience.
So another way to ask my question, I think, is that when thinking deeply doesn't work with a sneaky attachment, is there anything I can try in the moment to stay on path?
