I like the idea of setting a worry time. Maybe 5:01pm. I will set a reminder!
This whole thread is wicked great!

I constantly question how much we actually control our worry/anxiety. It seems to come on it's own. But if so, from whence does it come? Is there actually a "worry wart" let loose on humankind? How much sense does that make? It doesn't obviously. It would be nice if the cliche "don't worry - be happy" were effective. For you I hope it is. For me it is not. The exercises mentioned above help. My philosophical rambling doesn't seem to. I would so like to make my first posting here intelligent and helpful. I'll keep trying.

This site just keeps getting better! It's amazing how the list of the reasons people give to justify and perpetuate their worrying is exactly the same reasons I give my therapist everytime the subject comes up! It's great to know I'm not alone in this, and I will try my best to work through the ideas given to help let go of my worrying (hard after feeling for years that it somehow protects me!). Great thread historyteach!

I am telling myself this one over and over.. Good one.. I never had Anxiety until I quit drinking.. now I do.. "fear" mostly health..

But.. I learned that 90% of the things we worry about never happen anyway.
Thank you Suki..

Hi VeXun!

Don't get too dependent on anti anxiety medications. Try other alternative techniques as well. Try to consider hypnotherapy to have a grip on what's causing your anxiety. Once you know and rooted out its cause, you'll eventually find yourself peace while creating a new set of positive beliefs based on those.
