Decide each morning that today I will not use.
Remind yourself that I don’t use.
Every day I recharge my sobriety commitment
I only tackle one day of sobriety at a time.
I have the right not to think about using.
I stay sober because being sober is in my best interest.
I visualize myself being chemical free.
I remember that even using one time is too many.
If I do get an urge to use, I think of the consequences and pain that will follow.
I remember, each day, the pain I used to be in when I was actively using, and feel grateful I am not feeling pain today.
I remind myself of the agonies I suffered when using and the many blessings of sobriety.
I remember that denial thinking can cause me to relapse, nothing else.
I keep an awareness of my denial thinking so this does not trigger a relapse.
Remember the times when you don’t want to use are the times in which you are building up the strength not to use.
Develop and rehearse a daily plan of thinking and acting by which you will live that day without using, regardless of what may upset you or how hard the urge to use my hit you.
There must be no reservation of any kind nor any lurking notion that someday I will be immune to my substance of choice.
