    Thinking about nutrition is an odd thing when you’re strung out. You are probably so low physically that all you want to do is sleep, eat comfort food and get high again. It’s hard to imagine having enough energy to care about what kind of food you are eating but think about it. Your body has gone through some severe physical stress, so it is vital to give it the building blocks it needs to recover. It’s equally important to remember that malnutrition can affect your mood and energy level, which affects your desire to get sober.

    If you’re eating right, you’ll have more energy for productive activities, such as going to meetings or being with other sober people in Casper, Wyoming. You’ll have more strength to fight cravings, and you won’t be so low that they are overwhelming. You will think clearly enough to make sober decisions. Finally, good nutrition helps keep your body strong against the familiar ravages of drug use–tuberculosis, hepatitis, abscesses, infections, etc.—as well as the physical symptoms of withdrawal.

    Life skills training is beneficial for addicts in recovery because it helps them learn how to take care of themselves and improve their quality of life, which can promote feelings of purpose and motivation.

    This type of treatment works by teaching individuals life-enhancing skills that support positive living, including:

    • Healthy lifestyle habits
    • Skills to effectively manage stress
    • Effective communication skills to help them get their needs met without turning to drugs or alcohol

Using this type of therapy in combination with other strategies can help smokers learn how to quit smoking for good and avoid relapse.
