Spin relaxation in a strong-coupling regime (with respect to the spin system) is investigated in detail based on the spin-boson model in a stochastic limit. We find a bifurcation phenomenon in temperature dependence of relaxation constants, which is never observed in the weak-coupling regime. We also discuss inequalities among the relaxation constants in our model and show the well-known relation [Formula presented], for example, for a wider parameter region than before.
