Stop doing things for pleasure when it leads to biological extinction.
Kill your devices, when they start to control you more than you control them.
Do you ‘smoke’ to excess?
Are your drinking habits or eating habits leading you to disease?
What little pleasure today is leading to excessive pain and suffering tomorrow?
There is no ‘instant’ gratification.
There is only pain and suffering when trying to replace good works with spiritual junkfood.
If a belief leads to premature death, it is not a belief worth acting upon.
Unless, the action slows down or changes the bad habit into a good one.
No one is talking sainthood or stopping all the bad habits in their tracks.
But learn not to run to bad habits to cope with depression, anxiety and fear.
Don’t medicate your problems.
Find a purpose or meaning that will allow you to balance the good in your life with the bad.
A suicide is extinction.
A depression leads to suicide.
A medicated problem leads to depression.
Don’t use instant gratification. Give it up!
