Addiction! A word that is being used the most in today’s world. The state of being enslaved to a habit or practice or to something that is psychologically or physically habit-forming, as narcotics, to such an extent that its cessation causes severe trauma. It can be anything a drug, a habit even a person. Cocaine, one of the oldest known drugs is now becoming very popular among the teenagers. Cocaine Addiction leads to extreme physical and psychological consequences that can have permanent effects on the user and those around them.
Regular Exercise can help prevent relapses in Cocaine Addiction, claims a study. “Cocaine addiction is often characterized by cycles of recovery and relapse, with stress and negative emotions, often caused by withdrawal itself, among the major causes of relapse,” said Thanos, a senior research scientist in the UB Research Institute on Addictions and Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology.Using animal models, Thanos found that regular aerobic exercise (one hour on a treadmill, five times a week) decreased stress-induced cocaine-seeking behaviour. Exercise also altered behavioural and physiological responses to stress.
As we have all seen in the Sanju Movie, where Sanjay Dutt also goes for the treatment of cocaine addiction and even he is told to Exercise. So this is another real life example for cocaine addicts to get rid of this addiction. Don’t Worry! If you are a cocaine addict, the very simple way to get rid of it is Just Exercise.
