5.0 out of 5 stars Like a bible to me now... Or the Big Blue Book., March 19, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
For someone surrounded by drugs and alcohol, society and pressures, a nasty parental divorce, and by the new hardships that come with being a teenager - sex, technology, bullying on all fronts, extreme appearance pressure, I turn to this book to help me balance my life again.
It is almost like a bible to me now, or the Big Blue Book from the Alcohols Anonymous program because it has little exercises for you to personally take inventory of your life - your own personal attachments, for example.
I am sixteen years old, and I searched for myself in drugs started at thirteen. But I am now a year sober, and I thank Buddhism very much for my love of living, love of myself, and gratitude for everything I have overcome and gratitude for everything I am so fortunate to have. I could not recommend this enough.
It will certainly change your life.
