I often found myself bringing up the issue of self sabotage in recovery over the years - but the best way I have found to challenge it on a daily basis is this:

SELF-SABOTAGE= any action/decision etc that will increase your suffering in some way - or even keep it the same.

SELF-SABOTAGE= opposite of self-care, self-care being anything that reduces your suffering (on a larger scale)

For example, I might be distressed and not want to eat. But, I question myself - will this result in increasing or decreasing my suffering.

For me, this technique works for every aspect in my life. I hope you also find it helpful.
