Due Monday, May 11, noon: Pick a time in your life from the past – a year ago, 5 years ago, 20 years ago, your high school years, when you first got married, when you first started working – anything – just pick a time and tell me what you chose.
Then, tell me how working toward your behavior change goal would have differed then. Did you have the same challenges? Would you have needed to make the same goal, or would there have been another goal that was more important? Would you have had more support or less? How would the technology at that time either have helped or hindered your efforts? What resources are available now that perhaps were not there then?
For this assignment, the questions above are prompts – they should help you write a cogent journal entry. The main question is the first – how would your goal have differed. The other questions can guide you with making sure your paper is thorough and a full page 🙂
-Journal entries must be at least one full page, and no more than two pages. A “full” page does not begin mid-way down, after your name, date, my name, the name of the assignment, etc. I don’t need anything on the page but your name at the top, left-hand corner. A “full” page also does not end several inches from the bottom. A full page uses no larger than 12-point font and has 1-inch margins.
-Double-space all entries.
-Do not use colored, cursive, or otherwise difficult to read fonts.
-Use complete sentences and paragraphs. Bullets should be used sparingly, if at all.
-You do not need to re-state the question in your write-up.
-No pictures, charts, or graphs (unless I ask for these items).
-The name of your file should be your last name, a period, the word “Journal”, and the journal number. For example, if I were to submit this first assignment, I would name it “Brown.Journal1”
In this semester, my behavior change goal will be to reduce consumption of alcohol to at least once during weekdays. It has become common for me to take alcohol on at least three days in a weekday. In fact, two weeks does not elapse without me visiting a bar or a beer joint. On some occasions, I take at least two bottles of alcohol to my house in a weekday so as to help myself in the following day.
For this behavior change, my long term goal will be to completely eliminate alcohol consumption in weekdays. It is my hope that by the end of this term, I will not only have quit taking alcohol during weekdays but also stopped weekend consumption. This will greatly help to boost my health and help me focus on other important tasks.
I have in place some preparation steps to reduce weekday alcohol consumption in this term. This will include hanging out with non-alcoholic friends on weekdays so as to avoid being influenced into alcohol consumption. I will as well engage myself in class group discussions on weekday evenings to keep me busy.
Furthermore, I will occasionally visit my friends on weekdays to avoid loneliness which tend to make me plunge into weekday alcoholism. Finally, I will attend seminars that teach on how to reduce alcohol consumption. These seminars will in the long run teach me how to completely quit alcoholism.
To achieve this, I will use the following behavior change strategies;
Controlling the situation. It is through hanging out with the right group of people that it can help me reduce the amount of alcohol. This is because the right group of people will not influence me as opposed to alcoholic ones.
Learning to counter. Substituting the bad behavior of consuming alcohol during weekdays with desirable ones such as engaging in weekday group discussions and attending seminars will help a lot in assisting me in reducing consumption of alcohol. Through this, I will have managed to counter alcoholism.
