Chris Newcomb, M.Div.
I love action movies. In particular, I like movies with action heroes who are the epitome of muscle bound, gun-toting, tough guys who obliterate the enemy. Why? Because every guy wants to be THAT guy! Whether they admit or not, there is not a guy out there who hasn’t wished, at one time or another that they had the body of Arnold Schwarzenegger, the fighting skills of Chuck Norris, and the suave of George Clooney combined with the black tie good looks of any James Bond actor (or if you’re a child of the 80’s who wanted to be the Ultimate Warrior…see picture above...R.I.P Ultimate Warrior, thanks for the inspiration).*
There’s good news: even if you are none of the above, you can still be a mental warrior. Below you will find the 5 mantra’s of Warrior Affirmations for Recovery**. I challenge you to speak these out loud first thing in the morning and last thing before you go to bed for the next 5 days. Keep a written record of how you feel each day and if you notice any changes in your thoughts and/or behavior as it pertains to your sobriety. You never know what you will gain if you do not try!
