One of the best ways to aid recovery, in my opinion, is to try your best to take your mind off any of the symptoms that you might be having at the time. I think that it is great to be able to keep yourself busy, as it means that you're no longer thinking about whatever it is that you're addicted to. I like to listen to music and read books a lot of the time - basically anything to mean that I don't have to think about the symptoms that I am suffering from. What do you do to take your mind off your withdrawal symptoms? Would you say that it helps you at all?
