The Reds veteran is almost reaching legend status at the club but he is now finding a regular start hard to come by at Anfield after being one of the first on the team sheet in the past.
The 34-year-old has been back in the side lately due to an injury to Daniel Agger but his start against Arsenal last weekend was only his second in the Premier League this year.
Despite that the vice captain says he still has the hunger to go on and win more trophies with the side after picking up the Carling Cup two weeks ago.
"I can't lie, it has been difficult at times," Carragher told LFC magazine. "But I've said it loads of times in interviews: you have to be respectful to the manager and the other players.
"Privately at times I'm frustrated but that's because I'm a footballer, I want to play and I'm passionate - I wouldn't be here in the first place otherwise.
"But I realise this happens to everyone at a certain age. It also reminds me what I've done.
"I've played for Liverpool's first-team pretty much every week for 16 years.
"When you do it every week, it slips your mind a little but when you play the odd game against Oldham or Brighton at Anfield in the cups and you leave the pitch knowing you've won well and done all right yourself, it's a great feeling.
"So it sinks in more when you're not playing."
Carragher has now won 11 trophies with the club but says he still has the hunger to add to that tally.
