Does anyone else opt-out of permanent sobriety and chip?

Postby guts » Thu Mar 14, 2019 10:19 am

I will elaborate. I was wondering if anyone else has experimented with or been successful using drugs only occasionally to very rarely instead of trying to maintain constant and absolute sobriety. For me personally, I was addicted to heroin through intravenous route of administration in 2015-2016 and instead of trying to stay completely sober, I quit cold turkey and began to use a few times a month. This grew to only being once a month, to every few months, and I soon grew uninterested in it to the point of only using a few times a year. I guess I still do it a few times a year because I feel I have the right to indulge, although it is not conventional. Anyways, this has been working for me since 2016. I am not recommending this method to anyone considering that another individual may fall back into addiction and that drugs can be lethal regardless, was just wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience. I’ve known a few addicts to do this but I believe it failed for them, driving them back into addiction.
