Ambivalent Thoughts, Emotions And Behaviors Are Normal

You can learn to manage and resolve ambivalence. You can work through ambivalent thoughts, by completing and keeping with you a list of the costs and benefits of changing your life and not using. Add more reasons every day to keep your list current and to keep
the balance in favor of abstinence and getting on with your life goals. You can work through ambivalence by clarifying and challenging values that allowed you to use and that call you back to using. Create new values that will support change. Challenge those erroneous positive expectations of what a return to alcohol or drugs means for you (Miller, & Rollick, 1991).
