There is no set time or frequency at which alcoholics relapse. Some alcoholics may relapse after a few days of sobriety, while others may remain sober for years before experiencing a relapse. The risk of relapse is influenced by a variety of factors, including the individual’s level of support, coping skills, mental health, and willingness to remain abstinent. It’s important for individuals in recovery to be aware of the potential for relapse and to develop strategies to prevent it.
