Eightfolds Master List
I am 40. I am sober in AA. I also have other addictions. I might get disbarred from my drinking and procrastinating. At one time I had a nice practice, big house, lexus and benz, and wife. now i am broke and live in my dad's condo I also make money playing cards online. seriously. i dont like to gamble and hate poker really, but worked hard to be good. now i just dont play.
I have been working the 12 steps. I am on step 9. I know i am powerless over my addictions, i cannot quit or stay quit on my own. I told my sponsor and my girlfriend all my deepest darkest secrets. i am turning my life over to a buddhist path as best i can. that is my higher power. step 9 is amends. i still can do law, and i have let down a few clients. i need to do what i am obligated to do for those that i can in law.
due to my drinking and procrastination, i gave up poker. my online accounts have gone down by thousands of dollars as i cash out but never play. I want to play 40000 hands a month and work on my game.
Ninth step - I have made a lot of progress on this.
Poker - 40,000 hands/month. work on game. still not playing.
