I,ve dug out a previous post which is something that I am presently using and finding most helpful. Re programming the mind it appears is very important to recovery. The link is posted below : http://tmswiki.wetpaint.com/page/Affirmations At the bottom of the page is a link to a previous post where someone recorded their own affirmations. I have taken on that idea too, with a simple twist. I have recorded myself talking through my own personal self talk affirmations over and over into a small digital dictaphone. I simply plug in some ear phones, and listen to myself re programming my subconcious over and over throughout the day. If I get any periods of the demon negative thoughts, I simply grab the dictaphone which I carry with me, switch on and drown out the negatives with all my own positive self talk. I have read with great interest how this process actually works, and re programming would appear to be very important and quite simple to carry out. As someone who has suffered from a lot of negative thinking, it may take some time to re programme my subconcious. I hope this helps some of you, and good luck with your re programming, should you choose to give it a go.
