Caution: Warning Signs
H – Hungry A – Angry L – Lonely T – Tired B – Bored
HALT-B is an anagram for the most common reasons for relapse.
Take caution if your hungry, this may sound silly but it has been found that the human brain, once addicted to a substance, will reach for this substance as a cure for any discomfort as it cannot discern between needs. A person will get a craving to drink, even though he/she is really just having hunger pangs and a quick healthy snack can resolve the craving to drink or drug.
• SOLUTION – HAVE A BITE TO EAT.
