Good morning! My name is Lauren, and I'm a grateful, recovering alcoholic/addict. Relapse can be part of someone's story. It doesn't have to be, but for a lot of people it is. But it doesn't mean they failed because they slipped of had a set back. It doesn't matter how many time you fall down, but how many times you get up. If you fall down four times and get up five, I chalk that up as a win. When a baby is learning how to walk, they fall time again and again, but they keep trying, and after a while they finally get it. We keep encouraging them. We don't give up of them, once they'v e fallen down once or even fifty times, and think they will never get it. They have to believe in themselves too. Keep encouraging them, and they have to want to walk to or they won't do it. They will just crawl forever. :) Just get back up and try, try again. That's all I have for today! Have a great one!
I'm Lauren. Get inside the head of a recovering alcoholic/ addict.
