Sura – meraya – majja pamadatthana veramani sikkhapadam samadiyami

I undertake the Precept to refrain from drink and drugs which confuse the mind and reduce mindfulness

It would be dishonest to claim that intoxication felt in any way fundamentally important. life lived with an unclouded mind is not necessarily any less complex or dissatisfactory. But I can't now blame that on the one drink too many, nor 'escape' it with the first few tokes.

Unskilful speech is way more challenging 😉
