I've also heard many stories and have seen what happens to people when they "go back out." It's never good.
If you have to quit because you can't control your drinking, it's a safe bet that you should just stay quit.
I've also heard from a lot of people that it gets much harder to quit after a period of sobriety. There's no guarantee anyone will make it back. Safer to just stay stopped. No matter what.
Good topic for people who aren't aware of this. Thank you!
