Accountability – New Habits – Consequences
Sobriety begins with abstinence. Sustained sobriety will help create the ability to become teachable. If you have the capacity to be rigorously honest and open to guidance you can create real recovery. Recovery transforms thinking and creates a spiritual awakening that will turn crushing shame and remorse into a life of joy and grace. Through accountability we learn tools to maintain DAILY sobriety. Intrusive thoughts will corrupt sobriety so new defenses need to be integrated. The Recovery Coach is your daily accountability partner until NEW HABITS are formed that enable sustainable sobriety. These new habits enable emotional transparency, safe intimacy and the knowledge of your triggers to relapse and how to avoid them. To reinforce new habits we develop appropriate consequences that result from a slip into addictive thinking or behavior. Consequences can be as simple as snapping a rubber band on your wrist to writing and discussing a full disclosure of behavior to the coach or partner. Through these tools you will transform yourself from an addict trapped in endless cycles of relapse and remorse to a recovering addict that understands and accepts themselves, their life and all around them. You will learn to walk in the light of the spirit and be of service to others. Together we can succeed. Come with me on a journey of hope. The materials below are some of the tools we will use that support our new way of thinking.
