I'm trying to notice what triggers the voices, is it certain thoughts, feelings, foods, dehydration, lack of exercise. For myself, the voices seem to be triggered when:

1. I get down on myself. They usually insult me when I do that.
2. When I think something aggressive toward the voices.
3. When I'm feeling insecure.

I have only been looking over this for a short time though, so who knows if I'm accurate. I'm thinking about keeping a voices journal or at the very least a thoughts and feeling journal, so I can find if the triggers are what I think they are and to find out more information about the voices and my situation.

A tactic that I have used is trying to not let the voices provoke any type of emotional response at all.. and ignoring them.

Triggers are usually getting yelled at or substance use. I’m even so sensitive that vitamins cause my ears to hurt from voices...
