Sleep helps during detox in more ways than one. Not only will it cut the duration
in half, (you sleep for hours, so of
course it is going to shorten the detox) it also helps your brain and body recharge.
In fact, if you can take 4-5 days off from work, stay at a friends house, have someone watch the kids, whatever you need to do to be alone for those days, you can actually sleep through your detox.
