Anger is an intense human emotion that often arises when there is a sign of discomfort, pain, or any other overwhelming circumstance. During this, it becomes extremely difficult to cope with the situation as well as our reaction without the right management skills. At such times, we habitually indulge in; 

forgetting that there is a balance to be maintained. While, this may not take our notice but on the other hand, our anger infiltrates our actions, making a way for aggression, that frequently adds to our disaster. 

Are there varying degrees of aggression?

Yes, different people portray aggression in different manners and all of which are not healthy and balanced. also reduce in patients with dementia, meaning, they are unable to formulate words and communicate properly, face issues in motor functioning, inability to solve problems or reason, and much more.

The relationship between anger and addiction:

While anger may increase your chances of abusing drugs and alcohol to manage this emotion but on the other hand, addiction itself hones anger and turns it into rage making it difficult to manage. 

Patients of addiction feel emotions strongly and while they are entrapped in a brutal cycle of abusing substances or alcohol, they are unable to accept and face the reality of their feelings, strengthening their denial. As these feelings and emotions keep on piling up, it becomes harder for the patient to hold onto their anger leading up to a boiling point where things get out of control. 

As patients undergoing addiction are unable to learn healthy coping mechanisms during the onset of their disease, they manifest these feelings negatively, creating a barrier between them and their loved ones, and causing a rift in relationships. Understanding these negative venting acts becomes essential for both patient and the family for creating a chance for change. These mechanisms may look like this;

  • The patient makes aggressive threats to people around him.
  • Physically hitting/kicking/shoving loved ones while expressing anger.
  • Refusing to engage in communicating feelings and not assisting the other one when in need. 
  • Thinking and planning ways for seeking vengeance to teach a lesson.
  • Overly abusing alcohol or drugs to avoid confrontations or dealing with difficult emotions.
