Relapsing Doesn’t Mean Your Recovery Isn’t SuccessfulRecovery, while different for everyone, is a process
. Relapsing may happen, especially in the beginning – but it’s ok. It doesn’t make our recovery unsuccessful when we slip up.It’s actually a common occurrence
during the recovery process. It’s how we handle it that counts
. Slipping up does not mean that we cannot recover. It’s hard to break old habits and adopt new ones. We’re all human and make mistakes -- it’s important to forgive ourselves
When we’re faced with things that have triggered old habits, it’s important to look at the situation, learn from it and then move forward. By forgiving ourselves of these lapses, and learning from them, we can make our recovery even stronger
. And that right there is what recovery success really looks like.
