FITNESS AND ADDICTION -- How Fitness Helps You Overcome Addictions.
If you are recovering from an addiction, appropriate exercise will give you the same feeling of satisfaction you received from the object of your addiction. If that sounds far fetched, it isn't. There is a simple reason why it is true: exercise causes your brain to release endorphins, the chemical directly related to sensations of pleasure and satisfaction. Exercise not only helps you feel better, it reduces the risk of relapse.
A simple fitness regimen also fights depression and anxiety. What's really wonderful is that exercise is effective in recovery from all sorts of addictions, from smoking to drinking, and taking other drugs.
Exercise also produces a chemical known as galanin, which is thought to combat the feelings associated with cravings. You may still have "cravings" but the will be less intense if you get regular exercise.
