Many alcoholics and drug addicts you have stopped using multiple times. In fact, some of us quit every day.
Only to start again the next morning.
Too many people confuse recovery from drug and alcohol addiction as a plan to stop drinking and doing drugs.
In fact, it is much different than stopping.
And one of the essential parts of recovery is a relapse prevention plan.
Creating a relapse prevention plan is like constructing a safety net for your sobriety. In the best of circumstances, you don't ever need a safety net.
But if you ever do get in a life-threatening situation, you'll be glad it's there.
