The first few days following an alcohol-related relapse can be difficult. Some people feel guilty, depressed, and ashamed of themselves after a relapse.
The good news is that you’re not alone in this process! You are not the only person who has had to start over after a slip-up.
Alcoholism is a disease and it’s completely possible for you to recover from your most recent relapse and get back on track with sobriety once again.
It might take some work but it’ll all be worth it in the end when you find yourself feeling better than ever!

A sober alcoholic finds it much easier to be optimistic about life. Optimism is the natural result of my finding myself gradually able to make the best, rather than the worst-case scenario in each new situation (a vital quality if one hopes not only to live a happy but also successful life).
As time passes and with each passing day becoming less clouded by addiction’s grip on me as bodily sobriety increases steadily while at times still being plagued by self-doubt
I begin seeing clearer through the spiritual fog which will lead up until eventually achieving an ever-increasing willingness for guidance from God or any other higher power that may exist out there somewhere!
I may not always be able to find the sunshine in every situation, but my outlook is better and brighter than it has been for a long time.
It’s hard to believe that just over two years ago I was using alcohol as medication for feelings of worthlessness and depression.
Nowadays, even when faced with what seem like insurmountable challenges, I can maintain hope because of how much progress I have made through working on both sobriety and spirituality.
