Have you ever heard the school of thought that says that exercise is important in helping any recovery? I certainly have, and I've witnessed firsthand, recoveries from deep depressions and the like, from an abandonment or slow release of medication, and an increase in the person's participation in exercise. According to an article on the Chicago Tribune posted on July 12, 2013 entitled "Exercise: Alternative reward for those battling addiction": "The human brain experiences a chemical reward when we exercise. There is evidence to show that this can be used as an alternative reward for those battling addiction, which can make staying clean easier." So, do you think that there is a great mystery that hasn't quite been unlocked when it comes to the power of exercise to slow and stop addiction to substances such as alcohol, cocaine, heroine and other drugs? Let me know what your thoughts are on this!
