“Relapse”

In my opinion, a relapse is drinking or using after being sober for a period of time, and then coming back into the program to work steps and get sober.
If someone is drinking Monday,  hungover Tuesday, doesn’t drink Wednesday and ends up drinking on Friday, it’s just business as usual. The book calls it a “series of sprees.”
It’s impossible to relapse 3 times in a week…its just called getting loaded…
