There is no cure for addiction so the recovering addict or alcoholic must always be on guard against the possibility of relapse. It is very important to know the signs of relapse and take immediate steps to safeguard against temptation.
Some of the big triggers are stress, exhaustion, loneliness, boredom, resentment and relationship problems. Addicts need to be constantly aware of their triggers and address their underlying needs by practicing a healthy lifestyle with a focus on self-care, getting counseling, attending 12 Step Groups, etc.
