[Discussion guidelines]12:04:53 PMApr 30, 2010Report Offensive PostExcellent column. I know very well about stressors. A week ago a verydear friend died, unexpectedly. I went to meetings and shared about itand I will share about this death until I no longer need to. I am notputting any time limits on sharing. I did not drink nor do I want to drink.Question: you mention the word relapse. Can you relapse from anaddiction? If, you get sober, you stay sober one day at a time but youare never cured. Relapse is an interesting word I hear at meetingstoo often. Alcoholism and drug addiction cannot be cured ( despitewhat some advertise on television.)
