Examine your Addictive Behavior Mind-Scape

Addictive Behavior Mind-Scape.

Lets examine the Addictive Behavior Mind-scape for knowledge and skills you can use for your personal addictions recovery.

Mind-scape is a cluster of mental concepts, a package, if you will, of learned cognitive, affective, and behavioral aspects of your inner self, in a word, your inner man or woman. They also include your Addiction cravings,urges, impulses, and triggers.

Important because your present thinking, feeling and doing is often controlled by these ingrained concepts.

By using the Personal Recovery Tools suggested in these Addictive Behavior materials you can begin to SEE and to objectively observe your inner self, and your Addictive Behavior Mind-scape in particular. Abstinence and Sobriety Skills can be yours.

Then using your Let-Go, Let-God Awareness you can address those ideas and concepts which give rise to addictive behavior.

This process may sound esoteric, but, it isn’t.

The question is: How do you address (SEE and alter/change) the ideas and beliefs which give rise to the common ground of your thinking, feeling and actions as evidenced in what can be called your addictive behaviors.

What knowledge and abilities are then needed for your personal recovery from addiction? We know that addictive behavior is not a single disease entity, called, for example, Alcoholism or Drug Abuse.

It is a wide range of problems on a broad continuum.

You Can Build Your Recovery Skills to cope with Urges, Impluses, Triggers, and SNUP Buddies.

In addition, individuals, who are involved in the Personal Addictions Recovery process vary as to intent as well as capability. Abstinence and Sobriety are out thee. Where are you?

* Some are not considering change. * Some have definitely decided to change.* Some are ready to take action.

Once you start to acquire the tools to modify your problem behavior you are in an exciting phase of change and action. Then after some time, say several months of action to modify your behavior. You begin to seek ways to maintain the changes.

This can be a time of danger. With attempts to modify behavior, for example, weight loss, many unprepared dieters slip, and regain much or all of their lost weight during the maintenance period.

Sustaining changed behavior requires special skills, tools, and diligence on your part. However there is hope.

After several months, with success at modification of your addictive behavior you are starting to sustain or maintain your changes, even under pressure.

Relapse can and does occur, you may then eventually go back to square one and begin the process all over again. Just as with weight loss or any attempt to alter ingrained behavioral patterns.

In the relapse case, the advantage you should realize is the degree of experience you have acquired in the recovery process so far. You can then return to abstinence and sobriety.
Do Addictions Illusions have you in their power?

Taking Personal charge and responsibility for your behavior is the starting place.

This knowledge could be very useful, because you have to decide where you are now, and which addictive behavior issues are acute at this stage of your personal recovery.

Consider the issue of talking about drunk driving and about who sells alcohol and drunk driving

In any case, it is clear that self responsibility is the key required for you to take action and make the choices and changes necessary to return to full recovery, for example, abstinence and sobriety.

We’ll take a closer look at the Addictive Behavior Mind-Scape for clues to your skills in personal self intervention, that is, into your inner self, where you really live. It is essential in this process that you agree to:

* Accept feedback from your personal and professional relations as to the potential risk of individual harm or impairment from your addictive behaviors.

* Accept feedback from your personal and professional relations as to the potential risk of individual harm or impairment from your addictive behaviors.

* Accept personal responsibility for making needed changes.

* Agree to cut down or stop the addictive behavior as appropriate. Some can manage to reduce their consumption, as some do with diet. But, often other addictive behaviors require permanent abstinence for sobriety.
