She started staying away from sugar, caffeine, smoking, and other addictive stuff. Later on, she thought of giving up DiCaprio as well.
Gisele Bundchen, in an interview with Porter, once said:
No longer numbing myself with smoking, drinking and too much work, I was becoming more and more aware of things that I’d chosen not to look at. Was I alone in wanting to do some serious soul-searching while he stayed the same? In the end, unfortunately, the answer was yes

Amy Adams Talks About Her Intense Kissing Scene with Leonardo DiCaprio in Iconic Film
Adam had a completely different idea of her kissing scene with DiCaprio in the movie, Catch Me If You Can. Her thinking of the kissing scene with DiCaprio was way different than real life.
According to Amy Adams, she was expecting Leonardo DiCaprio to initiate the kissing scene, but that wasn’t the case. She had to take charge of the intimate moment with him. This experience changed her perception of DiCaprio for the better.
Amy, in an interview with IGN:
That was all nerve-wracking simply because I had to be the aggressor. It’s not how I saw the scene, of course
And then as soon as Spielberg saw it, I really appreciated the humor and I loved it. I loved it. It helped explain how this shy girl could have gotten herself in trouble in the first place. She got herself in a situation for a reason, and, um, she is boy-crazy.
Adam was anticipating a much more glamorous moment at that time, but it was a completely different experience for her, which she liked.
So to be the aggressor on our second day of filming and like launching onto him, essentially. And like having to tip him back in the chair, and tip him at the right angle to hit the pad, you know, it takes some of the intimacy out of the moment in for Amy, but Brenda was enjoying it… immensely.
