Our friend Sober Chrystal kindly allowed us to make downloadable .pdf document from her amazing blog post. Not only does she talk about the moment when her five years of sobriety hung in the balance and nearly went over the cliff, but she discusses the hows and whys–
- How relapse sneaks up
- Who is vulnerable to relapse
- How it can be recognized & avoided
- How to make it less likely by preparing
We learn in 12-Step support groups that one of the very best ways to keep your sobriety, is to share it (the stories and insights, the moments of challenge and triumph) with others. Chrystal’s experience is scary, funny, thought-provoking, and encouraging for anyone in recovery.
