If you think you’ll sober up

If you think you’ll sober up

Your integrity to yourself is very important. You have developed the self confidence you need, and you will continue to build your self confidence if you stay consistent with reading your letter and taking the action steps you’ve laid out. Here’s another tool you can use to raise your belief at any time. You can write this or print it, take this with you to the treatment center as well. This is a poem that you are ready to read.

“If you think your are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don’t.
If you like to win, but you think you can’t,
It is almost certain you won’t.

If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost.
For, out of the world we find,
Success begins with a fellow’s will –
It’s all in the state of mind.

If you think you are outclassed, you are.
You’ve got to think high to rise.
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.

Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man,
But soon or late the man that wins
Is the man who THINKS HE CAN!”

The writer of this poem, where credit is due, is C. W. Longenecker.

Remember, your self confidence is one your most powerful attributes to achieve what you want.
In this case, a full recovery from your bad habit, your harmful addiction.

You CAN achieve your goal, you ARE making the right decisions.

Positive and Negative Feelings

Positive and Negative Feelings

With your level of focus, there is no doubt that you’ll recover like a champion.

Here is a writing exercise, designed to prepare your mind to change its habits, to change its patterns, to change its thinking processes in an organized way to ensure your best experience at the treatment center.

Write at the top of a clean sheet of paper, 2 titles. One title being “Positive” on the left side of the paper and one title on the right side of the paper “Negative”.

List all of the positive feelings you can think of. (happiness, joy, fulfillment, unity, euphoria, etc.)

List all of the negative feelings you can think of. (failure, grief, disappointment, etc.)

Once you’ve got that list written with at least 10 feelings for the positive side and 10 feelings for the negative side, you can cross out each of the negative thoughts because you won’t be needing those anymore. You will be left with the positive feelings, the feelings you want to feel. You can look at this list every day when you wake up, in between tasks, and before you go to sleep. Continue to read the positive thoughts at the treatment center every day. This is an amazingly simple and powerful way to use repetition of positivity.
