Yes, initially being aware of what comes up in your conscious mind is a starting point, however as with everything and more so involving addictions or other more ingrained patterns, it will require a more in depth look at what you are working with.
So I leave the link to this recording here "Just a Symptom - Reptilians - Part 422
- btw they are audios, not videos, but the message is the same - which explains how only looking at what comes up in your conscious mind - thoughts, feelings emotions - and then 'stopping, breathing and writing' is not enough, they are momentary ways to stop yourself from going into the same pattern or emotion, but realizing that this process is about being able to redefine your being and that means in a general manner is what you decide to actually live instead of the same old programming.
This is to expand on what I mentioned with 'stopping the mind' being only but an initial point, but it won't in itself prevent the same pattern from coming up again and again unless one actually learns to work with it, which is where the DIP Pro courses come in, to learn how to in detail work with these patterns, understand how we created them so that in full awareness one can decide to write out and live out a new set of words or actions that are supportive for ourselves. Otherwise no matter how much we may identify them and forgive them and write them - or breathe and stop - they won't 'go away' unless we work with the understanding of how we created those patterns and how we decide to live the change in real time. All nicely explained there, so, yes enjoy listening to them when you can.
