After Opioid Addiction Recovery
Nutrition is a necessary component of any safe opioid treatment program. It is also extremely important to prevent a relapse. A better diet will keep you energized (cite: 1,2). A better diet will help you stay in a positive mood. So, you ask; what should I be eating? Well, the best thing you could do is go to Google and search for; 'Super Foods'. Then, fill your refrigerator with ONLY Super Foods.
This way whenever you are hungry and go to the fridge, there is nothing there but Super Foods to eat! What will you do with all the new energy you have? Will you make more money? Will you take up a new hobby? Will you exercise more? Will you set out and promise yourself to enjoy life to the fullest? Please answer; Yes!
Do Something Great. Take Up a New Hobby
Find something challenging, exciting, interesting, and worthy. Explore your options. Do something you've always wanted to do. Try something new. By refocusing your efforts on something worthy you will re-channel your energy and give your life new meaning, a new beginning. Ever run a marathon? You probably can. After all, if you can detox from opioids, there is nothing you can't do? Yes, it takes work, training, perseverance, and will power. All attributes you've proven you already have. See that point?
You could learn to play a musical instrument, become an artist, rebuild a classic car, learn to fly, go get a college degree, or become an expert at anything you think is worthy. It's all you, it's your choice, it's your life. You have your life back. Now go make the most of it. Do something great. Do something spectacular. Volunteer at a non-profit, or maybe help someone else going through what you just did? Can you think of a more worthy cause than that?
I want you to reach your full potential. Get help so you can synchronize your life and beat this thing once and for all. A successful future awaits you. Take it. By following these steps, you will be able to have a long life, free from the dreadful and wicked extremes of addiction. You will save your health and your life.
