Is Exercise One of The Keys To Combating Meth Addiction?

By McCarton Ackerman 10/24/16

A recent study revealed the unlikely combination that could help fight meth addiction.

"Exercise has long been seen as a tool that can aid in addiction recovery. Physiologically, it stimulates the growth of new neurons that help in restoring the circadian clock, which ultimately decreases the chance of relapse. But mentally, exercise is a valuable outlet for releasing pent-up or difficult emotions and also produces endorphins that create positive feelings."

The function (purpose) of addiction is to reverse a sense of helplessness. Addiction is behavior used to regain control over feeling helpless, frustrated, powerless, trapped and out of control. Addicts, attempt to regain control with a displaced behavior such as a quick fix or mood changer of drugs. There is another way to escape the helplessness trap. We can regain control with a healthy direct behavior such as exercise.
One of the best ways to regain control is with Christ Driven Behavior that honors God.
Humble yourself and surrender your life to Christ. "My grace is sufficient for you for there is power in weakness." (2 Cor. 12:9-10). Surrender is not a weakness but a strength. When you surrender your life to Christ (you delegate control), you receive a built in mentor the Holy Spirit (John 14:16) that teaches and empowers motivation, values, purpose and self control. (Galatians 5:22-23). 

Think well, eat well and move well.


"I am a Surrendered Believer in Jesus Christ with Free Will and I CHOSE Surrender (Intelligent Delegation) in my victory over, “Recreational Chemical Abuse, my weekend, "False Idols."
"I chose DIRECT health assertive Christ Driven Behavior (CDB) instead of DISPLACED behavior in order to regain control over feeling helpless, powerless, trapped and lacking control. I changed my, "Thinking," and God changed my life."

There is no reason why anyone with any hurt, habit, or hang up cannot be helped. The Person-God partnership simply needs to be more powerful than any hurt, habit or hangup.

Behind everything you do is a THOUGHT.

Every BEHAVIOR is motivated by a BELIEF.

Every ACTION is prompted by an ATTITUDE.


With respect to behavior, life is about, emotions, beliefs, thinking and control.

"A fool vents all his feelings, But a wise man holds them back."Proverbs 29:11 (Displaced Behaviors)

"Do not be conformed by this world but instead by the renewing of your mind." Romans 12:2 (Direct Behavior)

When you think and empower yourself and surrender control to God, when you Intelligently Delegate Control to God (2 Corinthians 12:9-10),

God returns that control to you with a, “Helper," the Holy Spirit, (John 14:16) a form of Reciprocal Innervation.

You regain control: "the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.

No longer are you subject to corrupted displaced thinking but instead are transformed by the renewing of your mind (Romans 12:2).

This is where science and scripture intertwine, where Christ Driven Behavior brings, values, control, cause, character and purpose driven behavior, the fruits of the spirit Galatians 5:22-23 .

“If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17.


Proverbs 29:11 "A fool vents all his feelings, But a wise man holds them back."

Romans 12:2: Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.

2 Corinthians 12-9:“My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”

John 14:16: "He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever—"

Philippians 2:13: "for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure."

Galatians 5:22-23 "the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

Ephesians 4:22-23 "...put away the old person you used to be. Have nothing to do with your old sinful life. It was sinful because of being fooled into following bad desires. Let your minds and hearts be made new."

Life is about finding Purpose. When you have a, "Global Purpose," in life, healthy direct assertive thinking and behavior follow.

Change your thinking, change your life!
