Alcohol is great. although, don't abuse it. I feel like everything in moderation is never bad, just not stealing

I live like a monk. I never drunk, smoke nor had sex. No clubs either. As for junk food I don't eat a lot of that. {Of course I eat it but not overly. I like Ice cream, bake cookies and candy but not in an glutting kind of way}

I do indulge in coffee & pastry. Does that count?

P.s. In any case, I'm not prepared to shave my head to be a monk.

I wonder if living as a monk would be a good life. It would definitely be simpler... Just do your chores, meditate, read some religious stuff, chat about those things with other monks. That doesn't sound bad.

How does one become a monk?

Nobody loves me but my dog, and I think he might be jivin', too.

Pretty sure all men in Thailand can become a monk - and many do even just for a brief time.

Wouldn't be easy - their life is fairly restricted, can't eat after midday etc. (the ones I saw up there all seemed to have mobile phones though)

There's probably somewhere in another country for Westerners to join I'd imagine - maybe Tibet or somewhere?

There are Buddhist monks here in the U.S. From what I've read, it takes quite a bit of work to become one, and once you are one, you still need to support yourself somehow in the monastery, which means having a job. I think it's mostly fairly well-off people who don't need to work who become monks here.

I'd probably get bored with studying Buddhism, anyway. I don't know. I've gone to some Buddhist services in Denver and didn't really get anything out of them. Hell, I can meditate at home. I think they're designed so people can befriend other Buddhist practitioners, and I'm really bad at that sort of thing.

Sex , drugs and rock n roll are my religion so yes I'm living like a monk





And I always thought this would be
the land of milk and honey
Oh but I came to find out that it's
all hate and money
And there's a canopy of greed holding me down.

My Mood: Cynical
I donít smoke cigs because of my asthma but before they were banned here I used to enjoy the odd flavoured cigarillo despite my asthma and I also used to buy them to hollow out and refill with herb as I have never been able to roll joints.

I like my herb but donít use it at all socially anymore, itís a solo vibe thing for me now. Iíd experiment with mircodosing some drugs that are now being studied in the treatment of anxiety and depression but Iím not sure I could handle a full on trip from most of them. I knew people that did everything from acid to meth regularly in high school so really I couldíve tried the works but never did.

With liquor I do enjoy it but beer makes me
piss like a mofo so I tend to buy stronger craft or European ones that I can get an effect from, enjoy the taste, & sip on more slowly. Otherwise itís all about bourbon mostly for me now.

Iíve never gambled and I never would as I have bad luck and I donít know how to play any of the casino games besides Black Jack. Seems like a waste of money to me in the end.

With junk food I wouldnít say I especially seek it out but I do have a hell of a sweet tooth and when I binge I binge hard. Salty stuff is alright but again, not inclined to really go after it often. All that said I do have a poor diet overall, no question

Though I've voted other. Caffeine is my vice.

How do you let off steam (or keep yourself from going crazy)?

Junk food, drugs, sex sometimes but am kinda ambivalent about it. Most of the drug stuff is limited though, I don't trust myself with it anymore. To easy and tempting for me to escape my own mind with it, and I will usually jump at the chance for some kind of escape.

Mine would be alcohol and junk food, although my diet isn't too bad for an American and I am a healthy weight. I have never smoked and never will, and if I go the rest of my life without another sexual encounter I'll be more than fine.

Junk food is about the only vice I continue to have, the rest I've had/done but I don't get any enjoyment out of them like others do.

So come rain on my parade
'Cause I want to feel it
Come shove me over the edge
'Cause my head is in overdrive

I drink alcohol sometimes, but mostly try to maintain a very healthy lifestyle. Never tried smoking/drugs and never will. Gambling is boring. Stealing is petty.

No sex; never had interest in the stuff. If I meet someone special, I'll sure do it with them, but having sex purely for physical pleasure ain't my thing.
