    1. Motivation is key to your recovery; itís what drives you to meet your goals. Without it, youíre not likely to change very much. You may not realize it but youíre already motivated to change. It took motivation to sign on to SMART Recovery, attend your first meeting, even if someone forced you. You could have said no, but you didnít. This forum will help you build on those first seeds of motivation and help you stay motivated during the change process.

    2. Now that youíre committed and motivated to change your behavior, letís look at how you can deal with any urges you may have to use. Learning to cope with urges is the difference between abstaining and using. It can be difficult but doable.

    3. This point is the introduction of basic concepts of REBT. Many of our behaviors are influenced by the way we see the world. Like our addictive behaviors, our thinking also can become automatic. This point offers techniques that can help you change your automatic thinking patterns. As you begin to think about the world differently, your emotions and behaviors also will change.

    4. Regaining your health and creating a lifestyle that brings you long- and short-term satisfaction is an important part of recovery. Avoiding lapses and relapses, and achieving long-term behavior change is supported by living a balanced life. Balance comes from finding and pursuing interests that you find absorbing, and achieving your short- and long-term goals.
