ONE OF MY FAVORITE AUTHORS
I’d like to start this off with the disclaimer that I am not an expert on relapses or what goes into making one, but rather I am just going to share what I have noticed in my time in sobriety.
Being sober for a little while now I have noticed different patterns in relapses depending on how long the person has been sober. There seems to be certain dropping off points where you see a greater number of people go back out again. They usually occur around 90 days, the first year, 2 years, and then in-between 5 and 10 years. Why exactly people seem to relapse around these time periods I am not sure, but there does seem to be a pattern that emerges. There is something to be said about education helping to prevent a relapse.
After the relapse, take the opportunity to find the right sobriety
