SMART Recovery® is: Self Management And Recovery Training.

The SMART Recovery Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA) is a tool for helping people recover from all types of addiction and addictive behaviors, including: drug abuse, drug addiction, substance abuse, alcohol abuse, gambling addiction, cocaine addiction, prescription drug abuse, sexual addiction, and problem addiction to other substances and activities.

A CBA is divided into 4 sections:

1. Advantages of using/doing: What do I enjoy about my addiction, what does it do for me?

2. Disadvantages of using/doing: What do I hate about my addiction, what does it do to me?

3. Advantages of NOT using/doing: What do I think I will like about giving up my addiction?

4. Advantages of NOT using/doing: What do I think I won't like about giving up my addiction?

This is not a do once and forget about it exercise. It is an ongoing project. Most people simply can't remember all of the positive and negative aspects of addiction and recovery at any one time. Furthermore, seeing all the negative consequences of addiction listed in one place is very powerful. On the positive side, no one really knows what they like or don't like about living free of their addiction until they have done so for some time. SMART Recovery has members who have continued to add items to all four questions for a full 6 months.

Simple but brilliant

Such a simple effective tool to use. Can use this for so many decision. Having it on my phone is fantastic, as it's always accessible, and as time goes I find I'm always discovering surprising new things to add to it. Also when I'm maybe thinking of buying a bottle of wine in the supermarket, I just take a look at my CBA and I'm reminded of all the good positive things not drinking does for me. It's my choice and looking at my CBA reinforces, and reminds me of the the bigger picture. Great app, but obviously you've got to use it! Simply having it on your phone is not going to work, you have to do the work, nobody's going to do it for you in this life. If it's to be, then it's up to me!
