Where might I start?

Increasing my awareness might help

In the "Tools" section above are the HoV and CBA.

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.

I acknowledge and commend you for being willing to seek this information.

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.

What about a thought, 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.

"Rather than wait to be great, before I start, I might START, to be great." - Zig Ziglar

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?"

Who might I see in a meeting?

Another HUMAN or HUMANS.

I might meet a person who is struggling with a drinking problem, substance abuse issue, gambling, or another activity or substance. Rather than using unhelpful labels like "alcoholic," and "addict," the focus is on my shared HUMANNESS and exploring this.

A common challenge might be me building momentum to move in a more helpful direction - dealing with a trigger, an urge, or thought to act out - MY UNHELPFUL THINKING (thankyou brain!) - and dealing with a life challenge of mine in a perhaps more helpful way.

Attendance is free - a "hat" is passed at the end to cover costs.
