cognitive-behavioural therapy

Has any one ever tried Cognitive behavioural therapy when trying to quit Amphetamine addiction ? I have read about this therapy and also have the Mind Over Mood Book by Dennis Greenberger and Christine A Padesky but would like some feedback from any one if they found it useful .
Thanks

Re: cognitive-behavioural therapy

am currently involved with CBT, to address issues that likely influenced my addiction to methamphetamine.
It seems somewhat successful, but takes some very conscious effort, can't really say 'oh fuck it I don't feel like practicing any mindfulness techniques today'.
speaking of, the more literature on mindfulness you can absorb, the better.

Personally, I give it a thumbs up, but I am still very new to it, and will see how it goes.

Re: cognitive-behavioural therapy

Thanks, at least thats 1 thumbs up ) Im really interested in giving it ago but last time i did my research i got abit overwhelmed by everything cos as usual i tried looking up everything from CBT to self hypnosis to spiritual healing and lots more i wanted some kinda help but instead of looking at one thing at a time i went all in and totally confused myself !!! I find it difficult to concentrate on one thing as you probaly guessed ! lol . my attention quickly fades too if im not quickly drawn in . thanks for your reply
