An individual’s movement through the relapse process is progressive in nature and will always result in a return to active addiction if it is not interrupted.

    When you see the scenario point by point there us a definite pattern, If someone wants to relapse they will subconsciously create the conditions where it is self justified.
    I can remember the moment i decided decided to relapse it started with loneliness and boredom and went in to guilt and shame,
    Part of this disease is the lack of true self esteem and a healthy self image it’s part of a coping strategy that lies we are not accepted or good enough but self medicating gives relief to self doubt and I was angry that the substance I found that made me feel like I always should feel I sirt of fell in love with and saw it as a friend that I could rely on and trust … Sadly I was wrong
