Quitting alcohol is a great accomplishment, one that not many addicted people tackle. It’ s essential to understand what the alcoholism triggers are so you can be successful in your quest to overcome alcohol. When you understand the various issues revolving around alcohol use disorder, then you will be better prepared to fight the problem head-on. At Granite Recovery Center our Manchester NH Alcohol Rehab Center empower people to find strength and tackle addiction.

Effects of Alcohol 

Alcohol influences the lives of millions of people in the United States. In fact, alcohol use is one of the highest causes of preventable deaths in the country. With approximately 88 million people dying a year due to alcohol-related issues, this is a serious problem that demands attention.

People begin drinking for a variety of reasons and these can stem from trauma, environment, addiction, and dependency. It is important once you go through rehab you seek the appropriate addiction treatment therapy services to create a personalized plan for a lasting recovery.

What are Alcoholism Triggers?

Alcoholism triggers refer to anything that sets you off to drinking again after you’ve quit. It’s essential to identify these so you can be successful in staying sober.

Although you may have some unique alcoholism triggers, there are more similar ones to which most people can relate.

Hanging out with the wrong crowd

Your friends can have a lot of influence over your success or lack thereof. For example, if your friends have you over for a party and serve alcohol, it’s going to be difficult. You may be triggered to drink. In addition, if you always drank with a particular friend on a certain night, then going out that night to the same places will likely be a trigger to drink too. To prevent relapsing many people seek treatment in a New England inpatient rehab center to distance themselves from the environment of addiction.

Dealing with emotional problems or stressful situations

People will always face times of emotional problems and stressful situations in their lives. Whether it’s a lost job, a divorce, or some other unsettling situation, people sometimes struggle to deal with these problems. When challenging issues like these come up, some people resort to self-medicating with alcohol. Therefore, any type of emotional stress can be an alcoholism trigger.
