Benefits of Quitting Smoking While in a Drug Rehab Program

To quit smoking is one of the best decisions you can make for yourself. You have the power within you to make this choice. This can be a hard thing to do when you are in a drug rehab program. Maybe smoking is what helps you deal with the stress of trying to get help with another addiction. You can tackle both addictions at the same time.

Why are you in a drug rehab program? Because you want to get help with addiction, right? Smoking can have severe consequences over time. You don’t have to do this alone. You can get help with the program. You can also seek family and friends for support to help you through on harder days.

Benefits of Quitting Smoking

Quitting anything that has become a habit comes with stress. Smoking might be your crutch to help handle the stress. Let’s think about some positive benefits of quitting smoking at the same time you are recovering from another addiction.
• By quitting smoking you can focus on healthier ideas to manage the stress. Smoking can make you feel less motivated. When you quit you can feel healthier and more alert and motivated. Quitting smoking alone can help with the way you feel physically.
• You’re in a drug rehab program to get help with changing your life for the better. You don’t like some choices you make. You don’t like the way those choices make you feel. Quitting smoking while getting help can help you in getting that fresh start that you started the program for.
• Think about your family and friends. Maybe some of them smoke. Maybe none of them smoke. Whether they smoke or not you still love them and want to have them around for a long time. Smoking can cause serious health problems. By quitting smoking you can prevent some of those health problems and be with your family and friends longer.

Smoking is a crutch that will eventually give out on you by giving you more health problems. You’re on your path to creating a fresh start. The life you want is on the other side of the stress and hard days you are going through now. One addiction is not the way to help quit another. Think positive. Find your motivation. Visualize your new life. You will get there.
