Can An Alcoholic Ever Drink Again?

The short answer is no, a person who struggles with alcoholism cannot ever drink again. The long answer is, a person who drinks and has addiction will always struggle with cravings and triggers. Some people may try to justify having a drink socially, here and there, but there are some important reasons to re-consider drinking habits in recovery.

More information on our addiction treatment

Some people find it helpful to blog or write about addiction and recovery. It may be a way of giving back to others or finding catharsis in sharing the struggles of being sober after addiction has taken so much away. A larger audience can be reached online than conventionally in some cases and may support personal goals to remain accountable for sobriety. Creating art, mindfulness and other techniques are also great ways of removing the focus from drinking to seeing how beautiful and hopeful sober living is for people in recovery.
