Exhibit 5: Coping With Thoughts About Cocaine

spacer There are several ways of coping with thoughts about cocaine:
  • Thinking through and remembering the end of the last high
  • Challenging your thoughts
  • Recalling the negative consequences of cocaine use
  • Distracting yourself
  • Talking through the thought

Before the next session, keep track of your automatic thoughts about cocaine when they occur, and then record a positive thought and coping skills.
