SHAREABLE TOOLS FOR SOBRIETY
The Desire to Change Worksheet
The Desire to Change worksheet provided examines your past to create your future. Your recovery gets started in the right direction by focusing on the real reason you are making a change. This writeable worksheet is designed to awaken in you the powerful emotion of DESIRE. Without the steadfast DESIRE to make a real, permanent change in your life, it will be challenging to sustain anything enduring and worthwhile. This worksheet will help you pinpoint danger signs you are currently experiencing or areas of your life that addiction has destroyed. Keeping a mindful eye on your past missteps helps you chart out a more victorious recovery. The second half of the worksheet is designed to remind you of the reason(s) you want this new life. What is going to be different this time? Setting realistic, measurable goals will keep you motivated during the often tumultuous first year of sobriety.
The Power of Self-Reflection Worksheet
The Power of Self-Reflection worksheet will assist you in discovering the root cause of your addiction or the frequent, infuriating relapse problem you are experiencing. You cannot build a strong recovery foundation until you identify and resolve the real reason your addiction began destroying your life. The ability to self-reflect on your past, present and future is vital to a healthy, lasting sobriety. Without this important skill, it will be impossible to build a rock-solid recovery foundation. If you figure out the root cause of your addiction at the start of your journey, navigating the minefield of early recovery becomes much more manageable. If you know what to be on the lookout for, relapse can be avoided with greater success. Use this worksheet to discover WHY and WHEN your addiction began. With this knowledge in hand, you can create a plan of attack that can withstand temptations, cravings and triggers relentlessly. Make this a top priority from Day 1.
