stress trigger

I now realize stress is my trigger. I'm not craving my pills I'm craving for away to get away from reality. I have a lot of stress factors right now. I must say I'm surprised I haven't cracked. You guys r great I don't know if I would have made it without you all

Absolutely! My number one reason for using! Stress (i.e. real bad feeling). For me using had always been a way to stay in the middle of the most stressful situations WITHOUT CHANGING ANYTHING IN THE SITUATION. I could just keep things as is. But when I took away drugs/alcohol I couldn't continue escaping from the stress I had to start looking at the situation and was forced to make changes. Or use again.

yep, stress is the main reason I use. In fact, stress has been the biggest reason why I've always ended up relapsing
