“We all want some kind of relief from that unease [dukkha], so we turn to what we enjoy — food, alcohol, drugs, sex, work or shopping. In moderation what we enjoy might be very delightful. We can appreciate its taste and its presence in our life. But when we empower it with the idea that it will bring us comfort, that it will remove our unease, we get hooked.” — Pema Chödrön
