Just about EVERYTHING is a trigger for me. the usual, of course, morning coffee, drinking, etc...but so is my job. I'm a barber and can't just lock up and go for a walk, so I step out and smoke because it's slow and I'm bored.
My kids make me anxious even when they aren't irritating me, that's a trigger. I only have them every-other-weekend and I smoke more when they are around (outside, of course).
Even after I've done all the cleaning and housework and should relax, I get bored--so I smoke.
It seems my whole existance is a trigger!
