For those of you just joining us: you’ve reached the Journey into Recovery: a Weird and Wacky Addiction Workbook for Recovery, or the book’s website at least.  Welcome, and hang out a while.  You don’t have to have an addiction to laugh at our bad jokes.  Below is a sample worksheet.


Based on narrative therapy, this worksheet gives the reader a chance to stand back and observe their relationship with addiction from a distance

If you could live your life over, what would you change?

The past is an interesting place, wrought with the stunning, miserable, mundane, and ridiculous, and somehow all these experiences pull themselves together into one personality and make us into who we are today.  It’s a complicated process.  Most of it is beyond our control.  We’re not even sure who’s running the show.  But what if you could control the process?  If you could rewrite your past anyway you wanted, what would you change?

The following is a worksheet from the Weird and Wacky Workbook for Recovery.  The book is an activity, coloring, and self-help manual devoted to people with addiction, but much of it, like this handout, applies to anyone.
