  1. The Key Issue of Control

  2. Control gets us into trouble in two primary ways: • when we try to control other people • when we use drugs and alcohol to give us a false sense of control.

  3. However the only person I can really control is myself.

  4. If I think I can control others I am moving in the direction of frustration. • If I think others can control me (and so are to blame for all that goes on in my life) I tend to do nothing and again head for frustration.

  5. There may indeed be things that "happen" to us and for which we are not personally responsible but we can choose what we do about these things.

  6. Trying to control other people will alienate you from others and causes endless pain and frustration. • Stick to what is in your own control to do. • Alcohol and drugs take control away from you. Very few people in this world who wake up with a hangover find that they have fewer problems than they had when they started drinking or doing drugs the night before. • Replace excessive drinking and the use of drugs with something that will help you get what you want in life.
