Regret is often at the core of most drug addiction recovery stories. That is because it often takes one or more attempts at abstinence before people realize what it takes to truly achieve sustainable sobriety. Unfortunately, a major component of addiction is its ability to impair rational thinking processes. Overtime however, even the most seasoned addict who has a true commitment to be sober can find their way out of addiction for good. Many say they could have saved themselves a lot of pain and suffering if they had known the following things in their first recovery experience.
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) relapse is always a possibility and very common in addiction recovery. However, not everyone who recover from addiction relapses. And for those who do, it simply means their treatment plan needs to be reinstated or adjusted and the recovery process needs to be managed. The reality is that no matter how hard it is to stay sober, the alternative is addiction, sickness and death. As such, sobriety is always the best decision and the safest high.
