A new study suggests that even though individuals with a family history of alcoholism are no more likely to develop hangover symptoms than their counterparts, they are more likely to lucidly recall their unpleasant symptoms. This suggests a possible clinical application, reminding drinkers of the negative side-effects they experienced in an attempt to lessen excessive drinking episodes.

Exercise is an important part of living a healthy life for everyone, but it is especially important for individuals in recovery.

In a study examining the exercise behaviors of individuals in an outpatient addiction treatment program, however, only 29% were actually working out. The most common reasons cited for this low number were lack of time, difficulties with transportation, and lack of money. Most of the patients were interested in exercising but noted that they lacked the motivation to work through their perceived barriers. We’ve provided a list of motivational reasons to exercise below, and we hope it helps to change your physical fitness routine for the better!
