Myth 1 Of 3: If You Avoid Thinking About Relapses You Can Prevent Them From Happening

Myth 1 | Myth 2 | Myth 3

I got a burst of inspiration and I decided to shoot a mini-series for you tackling some of the common myths and fears around the topic of relapse.

For seekers of recovery, the dreaded “R” word is avoided like the plague and it is mightily feared.

Here’s the truth: relapses are not something to be feared.

When you are afraid of something it controls you and has power over you. We don’t want for relapses to have power over you.

Rather what we want is for you to be able to learn from the relapse situations which is why I’m shooting this series.

Our first video in the series addresses the common myth that “if you try to avoid thinking about relapses, you can prevent them from happening.”
