Immediate “Next Steps” After Experiencing Known Triggers

How to Manage Your Triggers

Cape Town, South Africa

What Is A Trigger?

The first step in breaking the cycle of cravings, urges and relapse is to identify the unique triggers that prompt the need to drink or use drugs. Triggers can be defined as any situation or stressor that creates a thought, feeling or action to use.

Triggers come from internal and external factors. Sometimes they are obvious and other times they are subtle. Triggers can come out of the blue or intensify over time. These disparities make triggers difficult to recognize because they manifest in different ways for different people.

Let’s take a look at examples of external and internal triggers.

External Triggers

External triggers include people, places, things and situations going on around you. They can be:

  • Old friends
  • An old connection or drug dealer
  • Old hangouts
  • Paraphernalia (i.e., bottles of alcohol)
  • Celebrations or holidays
  • Sporting events or concerts
  • Emotionally charged interactions
  • Certain times of the day

Internal Triggers

Internal triggers come from within and include memories, thoughts or feelings. They can be:

  • Pain
  • Fatigue
  • Panic
  • Negative thinking
  • Insecurities

Triggers are unique to each individual. What may urge one person to use drugs or alcohol may not affect another. This is why it’s important to understand which things set you off and the proper steps to take if you encounter them.

Marijuana Users are Different

Different From Everyone Else - Weed Smokers

These usage patterns are similar to what's seen among tobacco users. "What’s going on here is that over the last 20 years marijuana went from being used like alcohol to being used more like tobacco, in the sense of lots of people using it every day," Caulkins said in an email. Adults with less than a high school education accounted for 19 percent of all marijuana use in 2012 and 2013 (compared to 13 percent of the total adult population), according to the survey. This is similar to their 20 percent share of all cigarette use, but considerably higher than their 8 percent share of all alcohol use.

– Documents proving identity must add up to at least three (3) points .
– Documents proving residency must add up to At least one (1) point.

The Silent Treatment

Unlike most people, toxic people have an all important egotistical agenda. That means they perceive themselves as superior, perfect, beyond criticism. Woe betide anyone who challenges their behavior. They will live to regret it.

“While helping around my parents house, when my partner would take a break or disagree on the best way to do something, my father would resort to name-calling.”

It is often argued that the toxic ego has its foundations in low self-esteem. The lack of confidence triggers in the toxic person a need to control their whole environment in order to protect their fragile self. Toxic people use rage as a weapon to destroy the person who is identified as a threat.

I have also experienced the silent treatment many times as a result of offending the toxic person. Although less loud, extreme silent treatment is still an act of rage.
