You're making great strides on all fronts, good to here! There is a sense of emotional freedom I experience from not M-ing. I don't condemn it, but I personally sure feel better without it. It's as much my "addiction" as P. Perhaps instead of a carpet, that gathers petrochemicals from shoes, dust, fleas, mold and is highly flammable in spite of the carcinogenic flame retardants… a wood or floating laminate floor (not that they don't gas off, but….) Easy to keep clean, and you can use your living room for yoga, roller skating, unicycling, dance parties if you throw a little sawdust down.
