I have never had to go through a drug detox due to addiction. I have had to detox from the dyes and meds I was given when I was treated for my spinal injury and I learned some important things. One of the biggest things I learned is you have to take better care of yourself, eat good food not snake food and drink a lot of water. Some medications stay trapped in your fatty tissue and when you lose weight they can be released. Think about that, years after you take some substances you could have a flash back due to weight loss. Obviously you might want to try to get to an optimal weight, which means you have to break routine and move, exercise anything, just try to work up a good sweat. The last thing I did and it was the most helpful, I went on a juice detox under the care of a doctor for 7 days and man, I had some serious detox symptoms on about day 3, but once I got to day 8 I felt better then I had for years. The Juice detox was easy and I did drop some weight from it, but mostly it gave a jump start to my digestive track via good vitamins and minerals. You literally get the junk out of your digestive track, stuff that could sit for a long time and could be toxic. I kept with it diet wise trying to avoid all the triggers that are not really good for you. Sounds like no fun, but believe me for the increase in energy and clarity of mind it is so worth it.
