When a recovering alcoholic relapses, it means they have started drinking alcohol again after a period of sobriety. It can happen for various reasons, including stress, social pressure, triggers, and cravings. It’s important to note that relapse is a common part of the recovery process and doesn’t mean that the person has failed or that their progress is lost. However, it is crucial to seek help as soon as possible to prevent a full-blown return to addiction and minimize the potential harm to one’s health and well-being.
