Thought Ignoring

The following are just ideas that some members have found to be especially helpful for dealing with the problems encountered in withdrawal.

______________________________________________________________________

"You can't completely stop a thought, but you can change your reaction. When dark, scary, or negative thoughts or images come up, I try to picture them floating in front of me, hovering somewhere near my forehead. From there, I visualize them moving to the side, into my peripheral vision, and then behind me, where I can no longer give them any attention. This sort of visualization may or may not help you. You can also send yourself an abrupt message when the bad cognitions come up: something like "Stop!" or "This thought hurts me!"
