Alcoholics and Addicts in recovery are told to
“Play the tape all the way through”
when they are thinking about drinking or using.
What does that mean? Well, it’s really quite simple.

When we start to think about drinking,
sometimes we have a tendency to
romanticize the drinking.
I
We think only the good stuff
In other words, we think about the immediate effects.

What we don’t think about, are the negative promises,
Those things that are sure to happen to me if I start drinking again.

We don’t think about the consequences,
the hangovers,
the pain we’d cause others,
the disappointment,
the shame,
the sickness of the withdrawals.

These are my negative promises.
Playing the tape through helps me to see the reality of me drinking again.

What came first to mind when you heard about the topic,
The Negative Promises?

What does the expression “The Negative Promises” mean to you?
What does “play the tape through” mean to you?
Do you ever romanticize drinking?
What good things do you remember?
How real are these thoughts?
When do you have these thoughts?
Are these thoughts dangerous?
Why or why not?
How do you feel when you have these thoughts?

What are some of the consequences that would happen to you if you started to drink again, what are the negative promises in you life?
When you play the tape through, does it help?
Why or why not?

How do you cope?
What steps, prayers, what tools do you use to combat these thoughts?
