We will be talking a lot more about the relationships between the different things you have just noted in this one­week calendar throughout this group: events in your life, episodes of crystal use, other drug use, and your sexual

behavior.

Day­to­Day Routine

There is a basic truth: Drug use takes a lot of time

. When people stop

using crystal, they often find that the

bored; they often complain that

they have nothing to do and nowhere to go. One way to fill this time is to think about past drug use, but these thoughts can often be a trigger and

start the craving process.

This raises the question: Now that you have made the decision to stop using crystal, how will you spend your time? Your answer will affect your ability to avoid crystal use in the future. So we now need to focus on a plan

for spending time that includes:

  • How to organize your day.

  • How to stay busy.

  • How to have fun without crystal.

How did you spend your time when using crystal?

Think about all the

things you did to plan how to get the drug, get it, use it, and what you did after you used it.
