Write a letter to yourself, starting with the reasons why you want to become clean and/or sober. Write down all of the things that are in your life that make you happy, that are worth fighting for. Write down your goals for the future, while keeping mind that these goals can be flexible or change as you grow during recovery. Write to yourself words of encouragement. Look back on this letter you have written to yourself when you are feeling weak. It may be the inspiration you need when you are having a tough time.
