Will an Alcohol Relapse Hurt those Around You?

One of the biggest fears amongst those who are attempting to recover from an alcohol addiction is the risk

of hurting those around them. They do not want a relapse to cause people to pity them or feel as if they

have failed them in some way. This applies to both family members and the people who they are trying to

recover alongside.

In this article, we are going to discuss the issue of alcohol rehab and alcohol relapses. Let us take a closer

look at it.

The General Perception

The general perception amongst people is that they are going to potentially affect their recovery partners if

they fail. This is both a good thing and a bad thing. Firstly, it is thought that the fear of letting everyone else

down will serve as some sort of motivator. The problem is if it does go wrong and the person relapses it

could make them feel that much worse about it.

Staying Strong

Contrary to popular belief, it is not always the case that people will collapse alongside whoever has

relapsed. Drug rehab breeds a culture of support. When someone fails, the chances are everyone else will

close ranks and attempt to help the person. They will actually take their attention away from their cravings

in order to help them. In other words, a slip here and there does not have to mean causing a significant

amount of damage to others. It can actually make everyone else stronger.

Should You Tell Someone You Have Had a Relapse?

It is not uncommon to see people deciding to suffer in silence when they relapse. They do not want to go

through what they see as the humiliation of telling their support group what has happened. The belief goes

that they are doing a good thing by doing this. In reality, they are only reducing their chances of success in

the future. By bottling up these feelings, it allows the negativity to grow. When people allow negative

thoughts to fester, the chances of a further relapse increases.

Always seek professional help when experiencing a relapse. Yes, it will mean that other people will know

about what’s happened, but that is not a bad thing. It is a good thing. Someone who can be honest with

themselves and those around them is a strong individual. They can cope with the realities of their situation.

Not being able to cope with what is going on is an example of what got the person stuck in an addiction rut

in the first place.

You Are Not Responsible

Nobody should ever feel as if they are responsible for someone else’s recovery. This does not mean nobody

should care about anyone else. It means if someone relapses,that ishis or her problem. They did it to

themselves. They have to take responsibility for their actions. Unless someone else tipped a bottle of beer

down their throats, this was a decision they made.

One of the biggest mistakes any alcoholic can make outside of rehab clinics is to make themselves believe

that their actions will affect upon another person’s recovery journey.

show you how to use alcohol rehab to turn your life around.
