I'm most certainly still on the ride. It's a tremendous help to my sobriety and my newfound happiness.

Thanks Andy, I’m truly enjoying and benefiting from this course. I’ve found the reading material and videos extremely interesting, and it’s surprising how often the autonomous and fleeting nature of negative/repetitive/stuck ‘thinking’ and the healing nature of ‘neuro plasticity, is mentioned.

Mindfulness is so relevant to conquering addiction and to think, it has its roots established thousands of years ago and it has now flourished, backed up by recent scientific investigation, studies and data.

glad that you're getting something useful from the course - I think my motivation might have been wobbling a bit by now without some moral support

if you like the science side of it, I did a course a few years back that covers this side of things in a bit more depth:

edX - The Science of Happiness

I was still drinking at the time, so I'm slightly hazy about exactly what it covered , but some of the videos in our current course come from the edX one, including the Kristin Neff one this week. I may re-do the course once this one has finished, now I have a bit more chance of remembering it

I'm enjoying it too ~ my favorite speaker so far has been Shauna Shapiro. I'd like to go to one of her appearances if her tour comes to town. Thanks again!

I'm enjoying the course, andy. I'm "behind", just doing the week 4 readings and video. But thats ok I guess, just going slow. I'm still mostly just doing the body scan ... stressed and tired but finding some refuge in the body scan, so i'll just go with that for now.

Thank you.

The turning towards the difficulty and pain video is a good reminder for us all in all walks of life.
