Over Practice And Over Learning

  • It takes months of practice to modify habits and thinking that may have persisted for years
  • It takes a lot of practice to have your new coping skills become second nature so you can use them when you are under stress
  • Remember, anticipate and be ready!
  • Don’t let the causes of relapse catch you off guard
