Slip Up V Relapse?

When does a slip up, become a relapse?

When you keep doing it for a prolonged period and can't stop again?

I kind of think it's more about mentality? Like if you can sort of pick up and move on from the behavior and it is only occurring every so often and not super life interfering versus it being more all consuming and occurring regularly and interfering with your life.

You can't always keep it separate.
This is happening, this is part of you.

When you’re unable to check in with yourself about a behavior and work to find a better coping strategy is generally how I differ the two.

For me slips up happen in the moment more on impulse than anything else.

I class it as more as relapse when I start to plan behaviours and how to hide it in advance rather than it being more reactive.

That said when I get a succession of slip ups in an extended period I would also class it as a relapse.

Do you want to talk about it? Recovery isn't linear, I know you don't need me to tell you that but it is sometimes a good thing to remind ourselves! Relapse or slip up, to some degree is semantics how you respond to them is what matters. Face it head on before you fall in too deep.
