PACE Yourself: Alcohol, Addiction and Exercise 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.
