The Stages of Relapse

Relapse is a process, it's not an event. In order to understand relapse prevention you
have to understand the stages of relapse. Relapse starts weeks or even months before the
event of physical relapse in most cases.

Emotional Relapse
In Relapse help therapies - you learn how to use specific relapse prevention
techniques for each stage of relapse. There are three identifiable stages of relapse.

  1. Emotional relapse
  2. Mental relapse
  3. Physical relapse
1. Emotional Relapse

In emotional relapse, you're not thinking about using. But your emotions and behaviors are beginning to set you up for a possible relapse in the future.

The signs of emotional relapse are:

relapse back into drinking
OMG it is back in my life
It is starting all over again
Relapse into Active Addiction
• Anxiety  
• Intolerance
• Anger
• Defensiveness
• Mood swings
• Isolation
• Not asking for help
• Not going to meetings
• Poor eating habits
• Poor sleep habits

The signs of emotional relapse can also be the symptoms of post-acute withdrawal which can go on for years after getting sober, some symptoms may never go away. 
We must learn stress management skills.

If you understand post-acute withdrawal it's easier to avoid relapse, 

because in the early stages before you pick up, the damage may still be avoided

In the later stages the pull of relapse gets stronger and
the sequence of events moves faster. This doesn't mean you have to use. 

Learn Early Relapse Prevention Techniques

Recognizing that you're in emotional relapse and have a strong need to get help to change your behavior. Recognize if you're isolating and remind yourself it is important to ask for help.

You have a human right to live a clean and sober life enjoying the best life has to offer.

Relapse prevention therapy teaches relaxation techniques that you can make a part of your daily practice to put more joy and ease into your days. Learn how to recognize how much sleep you need to be comfortable having the energy you need.

Learn about eating habits that make you strong and well. 
Allow yourself to practice self-care.  Therapy will teach you that you do have time for this.

Get exercise, go outside and walk around for 20 minutes or so a couple times a day

Emotional relapse can make you feel exhausted, and when you're exhausted you are more likely to crave
escape, which moves you into mental relapse.

Relapse prevention therapies can teach you how to Practice self-care. 
Think about why you use.  Drugs or alcohol are used to escape, relax, or reward yourself.  A lack of the knowledge can create situations that are mentally and emotionally draining and make you want to escape.

2. Mental Relapse                           
In mental relapse there's a war going on in your mind.     
Part of you wants to use, but part of you doesn't.

• Thinking about the old people, places, and things
• Glamorizing the past
• Lying
• Calling or getting together with using friends
• Fantasizing Euphoric recall
• Thinking about getting money or time to use

It gets harder as the psychological addiction becomes active again.

You think I could have just have one drink or drug.  
Or you think, I'm lonely and I know how to get a date or someone to talk to at the bar.
I won't drink, just cokes, but I want to go hang out.  Just to hear the music.  
Going too far back into reminiscing back to the days when the intoxication was working for you, before the progression that got you clean the last time is not realistic and causes lots of mental relapses.   Sure it worked for every problem user at one point, thinking you can go back to the good ol' days is a tool of the dis-ease of addiction talking to you in what sounds like your own voice. 

It is so easy to forget, You'll wake up the next day feeling disappointed in yourself.

If you go through it and get high, it is common not be able to stop the next day, 
and you'll get caught up in the same vicious cycle of addiction, lying, and trouble all over again 
These logical conclusions, seem to escape us once the mental relapse has started. 

Calm yourself down and call for help.
