Today marks four days without gambling, but a busy and stressful day at work.

However I have committed to note this every day and it is the last thing I do before I sleep

Four days and I feel wonderful

“There’s a Zen koan where the teacher holds a stick.

He says to his student, “If you tell me this stick is real, “I will beat you with it.

“If you tell me it is not real, I will beat you with it.

If you say nothing, I will beat you with it.

” And so, the student reaches out, grabs the stick, and breaks it.

If a situation is untenable, Mrs.

Rhoades, you break that fucking stick.”
