How to find the motivation to beat addiction
When a person is trying to overcome a drug addiction, the last thing on their mind is exercising. Their body and mind still crave drugs, all they can think about is doing drugs and getting high so, doing exercise is nowhere near their thinking. Well, since persons on drug recovery have nothing else to do than think about it, they can try to think about fitness and working out. The more they think about it, the more they set their minds on it.
Doing exercises is nothing more than a state of mind. In the beginning, you will not feel all happy about it but the more you do it, the more you will like it and that is what matters. As a former drug addict who is now fully dedicated to fitness, I can only say that with the power of my own will and a lot of positive thinking and motivation, fitness helped me to overcome my addiction and it has become my new found passion in life.
It is what keeps me going and it will be what will keep you going as well. A good thing would be to look on exercise as your tool that can help you to rebuild a healthy life. The most important thing that you have to keep repeating to yourself is that you will never give up on yourself. Find all the motivation you need in that. After a while, you will start noticing the changes in your body and mind. You will stop thinking about drugs and want to keep doing exercise because that is what makes you feel good.
Fitness can give you one thing that will keep you properly motivated through the worst period of beating your addiction and that would be people who are going through the same thing as you are. That can be the biggest motivation that you need. When you see the others pushing it, you will want to push it even more and that is good for you. Fitness will give you that motivation.
