How Sleep Quality Helps In Your Addiction Recovery
Your addiction recovery has a complex relationship with your overall sleep quality. Getting proper sleep might seem challenging, both while using and withdrawing from drugs and alcohol. It, therefore, becomes a personal responsibility to get proper sleep in a routine to help you successfully recover from any form of mental condition, including addiction. If you don't pay attention to your sleep patterns during recovery, you put yourself at serious risk of relapse. Fortunately, it is always easy to start afresh and put your focus on your recovery by immediately pampering yourself with quality sleep.
The Relationship Between Sleep and Addiction
It is no hidden fact that a person suffering from addiction is 10 times more likely to have a sleep disorder as well. The connection between sleep quality and addiction recovery, therefore, must be understood by a person who wants to strengthen his/her recovery. While poor sleep quality may increase the chance of developing a substance use disorder, addiction of any form is bound to hit your sleep quality. This is a vicious cycle that is very hard to break unless intervention from the outside is provided in the form of professional help.
Lack of Quality Sleep Makes Your Addictive Patterns Stronger
In more than two decades of deaddiction treatment experience, we at Shafa have understood that people with insomnia and sleep-related issues are at a higher risk of developing a drug addiction. In fact, most people who become addicts at quite a later stage have reported not being able to get proper sleep initially. Many people have admitted that one of the major reasons they used a substance for the first time was to fall asleep. Alcohol, marijuana, and painkillers, all give a temporary feel-good factor to the user, making them fall asleep. Unfortunately, these deadly substances quickly turn into an addiction, and the disease continues to grow within.
In some cases, sleep deprivation also leads to cognitive impairments including poor judgment, irritability, and increased impulsivity. Remember, if you want to take the right decisions, healthy decisions, it is essential to stay in the right mindset. Getting proper sleep helps you think clearly while maintaining a positive outlook on life.
