Remember to add specific goals to your “Life Plan” to ensure you take actions to:
- Develop coping skills, cognitive (thinking) skills, and lifestyle balance.
- Keep yourself safe, if you choose to use again.
- Treat a lapse as a learning experience and make changes to reduce the risk of further use.
- Manage relationship problems, financial problems, daily stressors, social pressure to use, and health problems.
- Reward yourself with positive activities and cues!
