ADDICTION RECOVERY-PROTECTING & CARING FOR THE FUTURE YOU JOURNAL SERIES
Supporting the Subconscious Mind to Accept a New Self-Image

THINKING AS A HABIT-WHO TAUGHT YOU HOW TO THINK?

IF YOU STRUGGLE WITH SOBRIETY BUT ARE STILL WORKING TOWARDS PROTECTING AND CARING FOR YOUR FUTURE SELF...YOU ARE BECOMING THE CEO YOUR LIFE.

A RANGE OF INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL STIMULI GENERATE CONDITIONED THOUGHTS. 

Thoughts generate conditioned feelings.

Feelings generate conditioned actions. 

Actions generate more triggered feelings. For those with addiction issues these feelings are almost always painful.

This is a cyclical process that often feels as though it has no logical basis. At each of these junctions we have a myriad of triggers and associations stored as mind files.

We do not need to be at the mercy of the thoughts, feelings and actions that are triggered. Understand this, how you perceive the world and perceive yourself is largely learned. You were not born with specific ideas about the world or ideas about yourself. Again, you were not born to be an addict or problem user.


To doanswer these questions in your journal:

1. Who taught me how to think? (Write down the first name that comes to mind of a significant early programmer and state your relationship to this person-parent, teacher, relative, etc.)

2. In my opinion, does/did this person live a healthy, meaningful life filled with joy and purpose?

3. In my opinion, does/did this person fully claim and step into their potential?


To doanswer these questions in your journal:

1. Who else comes to mind when I read the question- “Who taught me how to think?” 

2. In my opinion, does/did this person live a healthy, meaningful life filled with joy and purpose?

3. In my opinion, does/did this person fully claim and step into their original potential?


WHEN YOU PONDER  "WHO TAUGHT ME HOW TO THINK" YOU MUST REALIZE THAT THESE EARLY PROGRAMMERS WERE IMPARTING A SET OF BELIEFS THROUGH THEIR WORDS AND ACTIONS.

But remember:

  • the beliefs you carry influence how you see yourself, how you see the world around you and how you navigate it.
  • you developed a sense of self, in relation to the world, that either serves you now or does not. 
  • the beliefs you absorbed have either helped create a life you feel good about or they have undermined your potential. 
  • any belief that you have not examined, experimented with or consciously and freely chosen is a borrowed belief. 
  • beliefs impact your ability to protect and care for the future you.
