The Mindfulness Workbook for Addiction: A Guide to Coping with the Grief, Stress, and Anger That Trigger Addictive Behaviors (Paperback)
Break the addiction cycle once and for all with this powerful and compassionate workbook--now fully revised and updated
If you struggle with addiction, know that you are not alone. Addictive behaviors are often the result of loss--the loss of a job, the death of a loved one, or even the end of a romantic relationship. If you're like many others, you may have turned to drugs, alcohol, or other troubling behaviors to avoid the pain of loss. But this only delays the healing process, and can ultimately lead to a destructive cycle that leaves you feeling trapped. So, how can you break free?
This second edition of The Mindfulness Workbook for Addiction will help you identify the root of your addictive behaviors while providing healthy coping strategies to deal with the stress, anxiety, and depression that can come from experiencing a loss. With these powerful mindfulness exercises and lifestyle tips, you will be able to replace addictive behaviors with healthy behaviors to begin healing.
This workbook will help you:
- Determine the function your addiction is serving
- Develop healthy coping skills for dealing with loss
- Accept your thoughts and emotions
- Avoid addiction "triggers"
- Heal broken relationships and build a support system
No matter the loss, the mindfulness skills in this workbook will allow you to process your grief and replace your addiction with healthy coping behaviors.
