If you are asking yourself this question, you may be feeling lost, ashamed, and bewildered as to how you got to where you’re standing, once again. You are not the first person, nor will be the last who has found themselves back at square one after having had some time in recovery. Relapse can happen to anyone. If it’s you, now is the time to grab yourself by the bootstraps and fix it before it gets worse—because it will progress, and it will get much, much worse than it is now.
Asking For Help is Good
There are countless addicts and alcoholics who never make it back to recovery because of ego. They’re either dead, or living in the depths of addiction because they cannot let go of their ego by asking for help, and coming back to recovery. It sounds so simple, but admitting defeat for an addict or alcoholic is a life or death situation.
Addiction is a losing battle, and if you’re tired of losing the fight, it’s time to give in and try something different. You may be telling yourself, ‘I’ve already done this before, treatment won’t be any different.’ If you are truly ready to be sober, it will be different.
Going to Treatment Again Can Save You
Sometimes, people come to treatment when they don’t really want to be sober for themselves. They come because they’re trying to appease family or keep their career. If you aren’t sick and tired of being sick and tired, your chance of staying sober isn’t going to be as high as someone who is at the end of their rope. When you come back to treatment, you may hear things you weren’t able to the first time. You may be more willing to do whatever it takes to stay sober, and you will value sobriety like never before.
Going to treatment again takes a lot of courage, and it may just save your life. Though you may feel ashamed to come back, you shouldn’t. No one can do this alone, and if you realize this, you are on the right track. People in recovery respect others who come back, and you should be proud of yourself for making the right choice for your life.
