I came across this question, and in the text it was written as 'change in the chemical environment'. I wasn't satisfied with this explanation, so I am looking for a more detailed answer on this matter but didnt find much about it/

    $\begingroup$ Neither books nor magazine articles nor SE questions should try to put near all the story to their titles. With comparable lengths of the question title and the question body, the former is too long and/or the latter too short. $\endgroup$

Two $\ce{OH}$ bonds in any molecule have different dissociation enthalpies, as only the first one is related to the original molecule.

The second one is related to the original molecule with the cleaved first $\ce{OH}$ bond.

If both bonds have the same chemical neighborhood and are far enough from each other, then their dissociation enthalpies converge to each other with the growing distance.
