People in the early stages of addiction recovery may have as much as a 400 percent higher chance of experiencing bouts of insomnia than the general population and those sleep disturbances may continue for months to years, researchers say.
Does this sound familiar? You toss and turn at night, unable to get to sleep. Or you wake up and can’t get back to sleep. Remember, doctors say that you need a good 7 to 8 hours of sleep each night to be at your best the next day. It doesn’t matter if you’re 8, 18 or 80. And don’t reach for those sleeping pills – no matter how gentle the label says they are. Try these tips instead of pills to help you snooze away in a healthier manner.
