Where might I start?

Increasing my awareness might help

In the "Tools" section above is the My Values List - MVL - and the Benefit Cost Matrix - BCM.

Increasing my awareness of how my behaviour might affect ME and those around me has been shown to increase the likelihood of a helpful choice.

Rather than easy, a solution is very possible.

SEEKING this information is likely a POWERFUL start.

Using a tool to increase my awareness is often as seen helpful. Rather than "motivation" finding another "reason" to change - and reinforcing this - might help - it has helped others.

What about a thought, a craving, an urge, a slip or lapse?

Attempting to REPLACE an unhelpful habit of thought or action, with a helpful habit or habits, might take time. It is far from a smooth path.

There is no requirement, nor is it logical, to be on "day one" aftera slip, lapse or relapse - each experience might add to my knowledge bank.

Planning, Practice, Persistence and Patience - particularly with MYSELF and my HUMANNESS - are shown to be pretty helpful.

I might look at an 'Urge Tool' in the "Tools" section above.

"What might I learn from what just happened?"

"What might I CHOOSE to think or do differently?"

Who might I see in a meeting?

I might meet a person who is struggling with a drinking problem, substance abuse issue, gambling, or another activity or substance. Rather than using an unhelpful label like "alcoholic," or "addict," the focus is on my shared HUMANNESS and exploring a more helpful way to think or act.

A common challenge might be me building momentum to move in a more helpful direction - or dealing with a cue, or an urge, or thought to act out - MY COMMON HUMAN UNHELPFUL THINKING - or dealing with an emotional life challenge of mine in a perhaps more helpful way.

Attendance is FREE - a "hat" is passed at the end to address costs.

A handbook is also available at a cost.

"I aint got to do nuthin!"

Rather than being required to think or act in a certain way, I have the ability to CHOOSE my own path. There are many paths up a mountain.
