Relapse signs and symptoms

Experiencing Post-Acute Withdrawal: I start having problems with one or more of the following; thinking difficulties, emotional overreaction, sleep disturbances, memory difficulties, becoming accident prone, and/or starting to experience a serious sensitivity to stress.


Return to Denial: I stop telling others what I’m thinking/feeling and start trying to convince myself or others that everything is all right; when in fact it is not.


Avoidance and Defensive Behaviour: I start avoiding people who will give me honest feedback and/or I start becoming irritable and angry with them. I avoid going to meetings or talking to my sponsor/peers.


Starting to Crisis Build: I start to notice that ordinary everyday problems become overwhelming and no matter how hard I try, I can’t solve them.


Feeling Immobilized (Stuck): I start believing that there is nowhere to turn and no way to solve my problems. I feel trapped and start to use magical thinking.


Becoming Depressed: I start feeling down-in-the dumps and have very low energy. I may even become so depressed that I start thinking of suicide.


Compulsive / Impulsive Behaviours (Loss Of Control): I start using one or more of the following- food, sex, caffeine, nicotine, work, gambling, etc. often in an out of control fashion, and/or I may react without thinking of the consequences of my behaviour on myself and others.


Urges and Cravings (Thinking About Drinking/Using): I begin to think that alcohol/drug use is the only way to feel better. I start thinking about justifications to drink/use and convince myself that using is the logical thing to do.


Chemical Loss of Control (Drinking/Using): I find myself drinking/using again to solve my problems. I start to believe that “it’s all over ‘till I hit bottom, so I may as well enjoy this relapse while it’s good.” My problems continue to get worse.
