In this week's podcast Coach Blu and Athletic Director Marissa discuss triggers, warning signs and using dreams. Triggers and warning signs of relapse are always important to pay attention to if you or a loved one is struggling with addiction. Triggers are what precede (come before) your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and can cause emotional and behavioral responses. Triggers often come at the beginning of a behavioral cycle; prompting a specific behavior and a subsequent behavior chain. Warning Signs become present when a person stops focusing on recovery or begins fantasizing about the days when they were using, this is when relapses may occur. Some warning signs typically are experienced when romanticizing about past substance use, believing you can use again without becoming addicted or being able to quit on your own, and could include reconnecting with old unhealthy using friends or relationships. These in combination with out proper help could result in relapse or continued use. As we explore using dreams we dive into the concepts that your body and mind will typically try to remind you how to cope with stress, even when sobriety has been achieved, there will be times that your mind will drop subtle hints specifically when you are asleep to remind you of how do you used to cope with stress. That's the using dream typically awakes that sleeping addiction and can have emotional responses as a result. The good news is, using dreams is also an indicator that you're on the right path, that you're choosing, and being very aware that returning to substance use will not solve your problems, and that your body is re-learning how to cope with stress.
