Personal recovery from the disease of addiction, for example alcoholism or drug abuse involves three personal areas.
1. Physical 2. Emotional 3. Spiritual
Goal-Setting-Tools for Recovery from a lifetime of drug or alcohol abuse means learning to deal with all three areas. It also means coming to your senses and moving into harmony with the rhythm of the universe.

Without discipline, we insist upon getting everything NOW. A certain recipe for disaster and relapse. Perseverance is your key to Recovery Success.
Goal-Setting-Tools should help you maintain seeing yourself in a positive self-image and your addictions recovery in a positive light. This should be so, no matter what the past substance abuse, addictive behavior, or how you got where you are.
The quest for health and survival from addiction or codependency often seems littered with slips, restarts, and regrets. So be it. You can choose to be there, or here now.
Be Here Now.
Believe in yourself, build on that belief. It can sustain you.
Sometimes our start to personal addictions recovery, addiction treatment, and a positive orientation to life requires a great leap of faith.
Often a leap of faith across a chasm of terrible addictive behavior memories and treacherous substance abuse experiences.
One of Your Goal-Setting-Tools is a leap of faith. It can allow awareness and energy to emerge.
A leap of faith can be a re-dedication to your recovered life from a position of insight and strength, not desperation and despair.
Do you sometimes feel your Goal-Setting strategy has loose ends and that the edges of your plan are fuzzy?
Well, we’ll look at how accepting fuzziness of your addiction treatment plan may be a positive step.
Wouldn’t it be great to be able to separate the fuzziness, to get it out of the process of your addiction treatment Goal-Setting strategy?
To be able to isolate the fuzziness, and then to trash can it, or put it under wraps.
We could then move beyond our self imposed boundaries. But it is not possible. Fuzziness, uncertainty is part and parcel of our real life.
Fuzziness even permeates our thinking and our prized consciousness. So where does this leave us?
Our understanding this and accepting it as part of our addiction treatment or alcohol rehab is a positive step toward recovery. Because…
If life is not a problem to be solved, but reality to be experienced, then fuzziness, a kind of uncertainty, is an essential part of that experience.
Fuzziness is also an integral part of the addiction treatment process. So relax. Let it be. It doesn’t have to be perfect.
In proceeding with your use of personal addiction treatment Goal-Setting-Tools, lets take a closer look at the idea of addiction from what may seem a strange view.
Lets see if addictive behavior may have been your way to survive.
Often illness seems a pursuit of health, a survival mode. Fever is a good example of the body’s attempt to do exactly that.
And relapse, a combination of cravings, emotional stress and social situations or prompts can lead us back to old habits, seeking relief.
When we experience threat, stress, or even cravings, we try to satisfy, deal or cope with it. Sometimes our coping option leaves something to be desired. And then our coping choice can become a problem in itself.
This is especially true when we choose a palliative, ease the pain, coping approach which just attempts to cover up the stress, loss, pain, craving, or drive.
We may try to obliterate our sensing of the pain, craving, or stress. Stoned I don’t feel the stress of my debts, my divorce, my loss, or whatever is my pain or problems. The boss at work, or partner at home. Or whatever.
But if we can recognize the cravings for what they are. If we can remove ourselves from social situations that don’t support our behavior change, and/or if we can learn to deal with stress in more positive ways, we won‘t need the addictive behavior.
Goal-Setting-Tools stress: Change a behavior, and you change your life.
Of course it can be like he man up in the cactus bush. When asked why? He said, ”Well it seemed a good idea at the time.”
