How to keep your resolution to quit drugs

How to keep your resolution to quit drugs

Do you want to quit some habit or addiction but can’t because you’re always feeling demotivated and lethargic? Movement is the answer. Start moving and you will build motivation and willpower.

The best time to do this is first thing in the morning, as soon as you wake up. It’s also the hardest time because our emotions are closest to the surface when we wake-up.

The secret is to stay out of your head and immediately get into physical movement. Especially if it’s a drug addiction you want to quit, because excessive drug use seriously increases negativity and lethargy.

A lot of relapses are triggered in the morning because people lie in bed trapped in negativity and depression. Don’t let this be your trigger for relapse – get up and into exercise, it will change your life.

Six things to do to help break drug addiction:

  • Never lie in bed and think when you wake up. This is critical. Don’t stress about the day ahead, or re-live the dramas and stresses of the day before, these no longer exist.
  • Drink some water and stretch, breathe, do yoga or tai chi, go to the gym, go for a walk, ride or swim, initially it doesn’t matter what it is you just need to move.
  • Next get a routine in place, make it a new habit to get up at a certain time to exercise every day.
  • Try ‘tapping’ as soon as you wake. Here’s my video showing ‘tapping’ an easy technique to help get your energy moving https://vimeo.com/201213413
  • Get remedial massage or acupuncture. These treatments get chi flowing so you immediately feel more motivated and optimistic.
  • Take high-quality nutritional supplements, these will give you a boost of energy and make it easier to move. Nutrient saturation improves organ function and alleviates lots of symptoms so motivation improves.
