Has anyone ever heard of someone with years of recovery who relapsed, but then returned to recovery? Did they tell anyone, keep it a secret, or what happened? I've seen it occur a few different ways and I'm curious about the results. I know someone who had a slip-up and didn't tell anyone for the longest time. When she did, she felt like she should start over again, that her previous recovery time was forfeited by her slip. I've seen someone who had such a major relapse that it was no secret, and he had to start over as well. What makes people relapse, or what were some triggers? Does it forfeit your recovery time? Does it feel more shameful because you relapsed? Thank you and good blessings to all for sharing!
