How much rest should a recovering addict get? I've heard it said that idle mind is the devil's workshop and for that reason believe that too much rest would be counterproductive. If you are simply sitting or lying somewhere how easy it is for you mind to stand wandering . . . to dangerous territory. Too much of it and you get bored with doing nothing and might just find it harder to resist the urge to use some drug [to beat the boredom]. Your thoughts?
