Recovery Toolkit 101

In our first few months of sobriety it can be easy to move quickly from thought to action. Tough day at work? Argument with a loved one? Tired, hungry, and stressed? The thought, “I need a drink (cigarette, cookie, edible…)” pops into one’s mind and, if alcohol/nicotine/marijuana/food is accessible, BOOM! Thought turns into action.

When this happens one needs immediate access to tools to create space, comfort, and a new behavioral pattern for dealing with triggers which doesn’t have to do with substances. As we get more practiced with having this thought and doing nothing about it, these thoughts become less charged, and there is space between thought and action. In this space we get to choose how to respond.
