Relapsed nearing in day 9

I felt so ashamed. I felt like everything I had worked for was all but a waste. More than anything, I felt disappointed at myself for succumbing to such short term pleasure.

On the bright side, this has been the longest I’ve been able to hold out for. 8 days and 15 hours. I’m not feeling okay and probably won’t be for awhile, but I will stand up again, and try.


8 days is an amazing accomplishment.

What can you do differently this time to get past 8 days?

Don’t make this a long-term relapse. Get right back on the sobriety train.

All you can do is keep trying. We’ve all been there. Forgive yourself and get back on that sobriety horse :hugs: you can do this. I’m back on day 2 after numerous relapses. Be kind to yourself

Worst thing you can do is focus on the relapse . That self pity will keep you in this relapse mode . No one can take your clean days away from you. Keep ya head up!
