By   /  April 18, 2023  /  No Comments


Dr. Megan Johnson McCullough, who writes two columns for The Vista Press (Healthy Community Healthy You and Ask The Pro) was contacted by Elsevier, an academic textbook company, to publish her dissertation study. The textbook has just been released, titled, PACE Yourself: Alcohol, Addiction and Exercise:  PACE Yourself: Alcohol, Addiction and Exercise – Kindle edition by Mccullough, Megan Johnson. Health, Fitness & Dieting Kindle eBooks @ Amazon.com.

In summary, the book provides qualitative research about the influence of exercise on alcohol use disorder (AUD) recovery. In addition, the author explains how someone can benefit from exercise and explores how the PACE method could help keep new addictions at bay. PACE is an acronym for Proactive Awareness Controlling Excess. The author has developed an app of the same name which is available in the Apple store. Exercise is medicine when it comes to the recovering body and mind of an alcoholic. Physiological and psychological changes as a result of moving the body contribute to prolonged sobriety and deter the cyclical threat the nature of alcohol abuse can pose upon person in recovery.

The struggle to never become powerless to alcohol again can be kept at bay when the benefits of exercise over power the benefits alcohol used to have. However, the addictive mind can find a new habit to replace the old one. The PACE method proposes steps to become aware of replacement type behaviors with the understanding that anyone can become addicted to anything.

Anyone in recovery or who knows someone in recovery could find interest and benefit from Dr. McCullough’s work. We are proud to have her as part of our team of writers, especially since she was born and raised right her in North County.
