Craving has been defined as an intense desire for some particular thing or, an urgent or abnormal desire. It may be that a more useable definition is a combination of the two. Craving for an addiction is not just a thought of the behavior. It is a mixture of thoughts, feelings, behaviors, visualizations, and perceptions that combine to make the want to use, drink, etc. even more intense. You can crave anything! Some things we crave, we taste, we smell, are not considered to be very harmful. We can crave pizza, cool weather, or attention. We can also crave alcohol, cocaine, heroin, pain pills, gambling, sex, or marijuana. The process and the mechanism is the same. The consequences vary. Common triggers for craving are:
  1. Being around it and around those who are doing it.
  2. Being in situations that remind us of using, drinking, smoking, etc.
  3. Certain smells or tastes. Really anything having to do with our five senses.
  4. All kinds of things associated with the past addictive behavior. Stuff like pay days, bars, sex, movies, and music.
  5. Physical illness.
  6. Unwanted or uncomfortable feelings or emotions.
  7. Stressful relationships or situations.
