Nobody's drama, maybe your attachment to it.

Freefall, I empathise with your situation, remember to be kind to yourself and don't over-analyse the status quo.
Just recognise there is suffering/agitation/discontent with your life, and then take it from there - start off with generosity and kindness to yourself and your friends around you, fulfil your precepts (importantly stay off the drugs and booze).
Go on retreat, and establish yourself in a meditation technique.
Everything starts off with baby steps.

Be well in Dhamma,

The encouragement I have received is helpful and I appreciate it. Thank you. I think it is useful and what I needed to read. I will now meditate and will attend a Buddhist Monastery this Sunday during open meditation. Thank you again :bow:

Time is what keeps everything from happening at once.
