Relapse Is The Process Of Recovery!

RELAPSE IS A PROCESS many people new in recovery and some that have been around for awhile may believe that relapse is an event. In other words, they believe that one they just all of a sudden they used drugs or drank alcohol after having some period of abstinence. The fact is that relapse is a process. This means that before a person returns to drug or alcohol use there are warning signs. These warning signs show up in ones behavior, attitude, thinking, or feelings and can show up in all four at once. Therefore, it is important to incorporate in your recovery a way of monitoring your relapse warning signs so that you can prevent yourself from progressing through the phases and ultimately returning to your addiction. Most useful is to take a daily inventory or doing a nightly check off of the relapse warning signs and then incorporate a strategy to work your way out of the phase that you may be in. It is important to know that it is possible to go from one phase to the last phase, where drinking and using has begun, in a short period of time. A day in which an alcoholic does not drink is a good day. A day in which an alcoholic does not recognize relapse warning signs is a deadly day. Source unknown
