Relapse and Addiction

Many people who suffer from addiction have a fear of relapsing. They finally found the courage to seek help and they may successfully adhere to the treatment guidelines and begin to live a clean and sober lifestyle. They go back out into the real world and they have a bad day at work, or receive upsetting news and they resort back to old habits. You are not alone. Up to 80 percent of alcoholics will hit the bottle again at least once and between 60 and 90 percent of smokers will light up within one year of quitting. Relapse shouldn’t be viewed as a negative thing. It is all part of the process. The road to recovery can be winding with ups and downs. If you or a loved one experiences a relapse, do not get discouraged. Simply seek treatment again to help cope with this bump in the road of life.
