For me, action is the key word.
Sometimes, when I haven't had the desire to make changes that I've needed to make, here is what has most often helped me:
1. Even when I didn't believe God would help me, and He would puke on me (or worse)... if I prayed to Him... I prayed anyway!
My prayer was something like "God, please don't be ticked off at me for praying to you, I'm just trying to follow instructions! I realize you probably want to puke all over me... but, I told my sponsor that I would pray anyway... so, if you're going to be ticked... please be ticked at him!
I need help. I need to make some changes. I don't want to make the changes... would you please help me to want to make the changes?"
2. The next day, my sponsor would ask "Well??? Did you pray or not?" And, I said yes.... I asked God to be ticked at you instead of me, because you told me to pray to Him, and I already told you God don't want to hear from me! But, I did ask Him to help me want to make the changes.
3. Then, my sponsor says... Good! You followed instructions! And, I asked "what do I do now?"
4. He says, now... you learn that staying sober... has nothing to do with what you want or don't want to do! And, making changes are the same. You have to make the changes or you won't stay sober. And, you have to take certain actions -- to stay sober. Most often... you're not going to "want to" do what you have to do! So, you just do it anyway, regardless if you like it or want it or not! Just like when I told you to pray!
You didn't want to pray... you didn't believe it will help... and in your case??? It probably won't help! Why would God want to help a guy that's been a big jerk?"
He said "The key to sobriety... is to do the things you don't want to do, and you do them regardless if you believe they will help or not. You just do them!"
So, I listened to him and I did what he said to do... and I still do. It's worked so far... It may not work tomorrow, but it worked pretty good today, and yesterday, and a bunch of days before that!
