What if I had a slip during my recovery? Is this a bad sign?
I mean if my addiction was of daily pattern. Then as I started recovery it became weekly, is this a progress? Or I should cut it at once?
In lesson1- does allowing myself time to change means it's normal to have relapses?
Do relapses break my commitment? If I was so committed then I had a setback I will question my commitment!! And I'll feel like I'm lying to myself!
What do you think?

I'm being frustrated about my recurrent soberness then relapses! Even though I'm trying to not let guilt or sham sabotage my commitment.

To be honest, my addiction decreased when I joined here, I made it through the euphoria stage.. But when it was gone I wasn't ready to protect myself from further slips!
And there comes the depression and frustration!
I know I can make it all the way to end my addiction, but these urges are too strong!!

Any thoughts?
