Just found this... Nice clear roadmap

Objective 05: Developing a Functional Awareness of Addiction

Understanding the Role of Addiction
Addiction has served as a temporarily effective emotional management strategy
The rituals of my addiction allow me to produce immediate emotional gratification/relief
The rituals of my addiction have become so ingrained that they are experienced as compulsive
In an ingrained addiction, NOT engaging in the compulsive rituals trigger emotional discomfort
Developing a Functional Awareness of Addiction
Three Tiers of Awareness
Elemental Awareness
I have created my own 'Wheel of Sexual and/or Romantic Compulsivity"
Each element on this wheel will represent a means of producing/altering your emotions
I understand how the filters are used in measuring the intensity of stimulation for each element
I have achieved the ability to dissect my personal rituals into their elements
I have identified the separate elements of every major compulsive ritual that I have engaged in
Ritual Awareness
I understand that every ritual I examine should be isolated from all others
With every ritual I examine, I define its objective starting point
With every ritual I examine (in early recovery), I define the "point of no return'
With every ritual I examine, I define its objective ending point
I have 'mapped out' a personal ritual from every major applicable behavior category (i.e. porn)
I have 'measured' at least two personal rituals
Chain Awareness
I have identified all common chains in my addiction
I am able to manipulate elements/rituals to affect the overall stimulation a chain produces
I recognize that my compulsive chains are not limited to sexual and/or romantic behavior
