In this section of the module, we will create a firm plan for changing your drinking, smoking or using habits.
During this process, it is normal to be a little uncertain about change, or even in thinking about making a change to your alcohol or other drug use.
It may be that you are not ready to make any changes at all. Maybe you are only ready to look at your mood, your thoughts or feelings - and in trying to set some goals for change that focus on improving these parts of your life and perhaps improving your quality of life. If so, that’s OK, and the next section will guide you through this process.
Before we get there, however, it is often useful to summarise all the information you have been given so far, and see where that leaves you.
