If you’re in recovery, you must find ways of coping healthily, even if the world is changing in many ways.
After a successful detox in a treatment center like Landmark Recovery in Oklahoma City, you should be armed with ways to stay strong in your recovery.
Stress is the enemy of recovery.
Negative emotions like anger, frustration, anxiety, and depression can trigger cravings.
The trick to staying strong in recovery is knowing yourself and how to manage those emotions when life throws you a curveball.
It’s going to happen: setbacks are a natural part of life.
As you know, addiction is a brain disease, not a moral failure. Prolonged substance use changes the chemical make-up of the brain.
But, the good news is that the brain still has plasticity and you have the power to rewire your brain. Once you learn to successfully manage your emotions in stressful times you’ll develop new neural pathways and it will become easier over time.
Like you develop physical strength in the gym you can develop mental strength.
