And the striker has vowed to show how much retaining the trophy means to him – by netting the goals that keep the silverware at Parkhead.
Neil Lennon was furious with the application of his Hoops stars in the 3-2 defeat to on-form Ross County in Dingwall last weekend.
The Scottish champions, who were 16 points clear at the top of the table, had led their opponents 2-0 at Dingwall at half-time.
However, Lennon has spoken to the individuals he felt failed to give their all and is convinced they are still committed to Celtic's cause.
And Stokes, who is hoping to do well enough between now and the end of the season to earn a new contract, is determined to show how much he cares, starting with today's clash against Aberdeen at Parkhead.
The Irishman said: "We let ourselves down last weekend. But this is a whole new game and we want to try and bounce back. Hopefully I can score and help us do that.
"We have been disappointed this week. The gaffer made it clear to us that it (the County display) was not acceptable and we will go out and try to rectify it today against Aberdeen.
"Every time you lose a game you always think you can do better. I missed a good chance at the end of the first half when I should have scored. It wasn't a great game for me.
"I was very happy with my form in the first couple of games after I came back. But it needed lifted again. If I am not scoring goals I am not doing my job. I haven't done that in the last couple of games or so.
"The blips have just been down to us under-performing. It is not down to complacency, it is just disappointing performances. We want to win the league and win it in style."
Asked if he thought the huge lead had subconsciously caused the Celtic players to take their foot off the gas, Stokes replied: "I don't see that.
"I look at the boys in training. Everyone works hard every day. We take every game as seriously as possible.
"Every game we go to we have a good crowd. It is not as if we are going to stadiums where nobody is watching us. There is always a good atmosphere. That alone should get us up for it.
"We have to adapt to whatever conditions we play in."
