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 Elizabethtown, Kentucky. 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.
