Your road to recovery can be made easier. If you know what can and will happen, you can then know the way you want to proceed. When you use an addictive substance such as cocaine, your brain gets addicted to it. Cocaine abuse causes your brain to get out of balance. Over time your brain relies more and more on you giving it more cocaine. It needs it to use as a replacement for the neurotransmitters that handled the tasks of normal brain functioning.

So, if your brain is addicted, it is going to continue to send you messages to feed it more cocaine even after you make the decision to stop using. It’s not that you don’t want to quit your addiction, it’s that you can’t do it without a fight. This is why people relapse so often. The urge and cravings to use are just too strong to stop due to your addicted brain.

There’s a new tool you may want to try, and we’ll get to that in a minute. Meantime, here are ten tools you can try to help you in healing your addicted brain from cocaine:

  1. Believe. Get and hold on to a positive attitude. A key to successful detox from cocaine is a positive attitude. The cravings to use cocaine are real and real tough. Remember, it’s a brain thing. It’s not about you being weak or a failure.
  2. Focus on a goal. Identify it. Clarify it. Make the images in your mind as detailed and specific as you can. Be driven by it. Think about it. Talk about it. Dream about it. Don’t give up on it. Ever. Get it done. It can be the reward that makes everything you’ve been through seem worthwhile.
  3. Know you are not alone. You are far from alone. Many others before you have succeeded in ending their relationship with cocaine once and for all. You can easily find help and hope from friends, family, medical professionals, 12-Step support groups like A.A, and spiritual advisors, too. More people understand your problem than you might think.
  4. Be accountable. Stay committed to holding yourself accountable for your actions, both past and present. If possible, find someone you trust and respect to hold you accountable as well.
  5. Trash your stash. Get rid of the people, places and things that were reliable tools for getting cocaine when you needed it. Clean out your car, your home, your workspace, and your cellphone from any connections to cocaine.
  6. Remove yourself from negative patterns. Make sure you remove yourself from your old negative patterns, situations and surroundings. When, where, how, or with who did you use cocaine? The answers to these questions will house your greatest, most familiar temptations. Get away from them so you can stay away from them.
  7. Create new positive patterns for yourself. New and exciting patterns, situations, and surroundings will help to stimulate your mind to think differently, and to help focus your addicted brain on something other than demanding you give it more and more cocaine to function.
  8. Create positive forms of fun and enjoyment. Go back to doing healthy things you loved to do before getting addicted. Try new activities or the hobby you always wanted to explore. Keep your mind active and engaged in exciting and entertaining ways that safely bring you peace, pleasure and happiness.
  9. Get healthy. Exercise often. Get on a healthy diet. Exercise and nutrition helps you to feel better physically, mentally, and emotionally than the cocaine did.
