    S= STOP

    You should stop and think before an action. You need to give yourself time to become aware of what you are doing. You should think about choosing an appropriate alternative. Examples are stopping before making a purchase, stopping before hitting another student, or stopping before talking out in class.

    T = THINK

    You should be aware of choices and think about your alternatives. You need to develop strategies for thinking. You can think about these questions: -  Is this the best choice? -  Is there any way to accomplish this? -  What effect will my choice have on my parents? -  What effect will my choice have on me? -  What are my choices?

    A = ACT

    You need to realize that you are responsible for your own actions. Your behavior is what you do or think. Behavior has a consequence. A consequence is a positive or negative result of an action or behavior.

    R = REVIEW

    You need to review your actions in order to evaluate your behavior. Evaluation is to examine, to judge, or to look at something in order to determine the effect or value of the behavior. Successful people always review their actions.
