Counting to Ten

The following are just ideas that some members have found to be especially helpful for dealing with the problems encountered in withdrawal.

______________________________________________________________________

"When brimming over in a fit benzo rage, or just garden-variety snippiness, you can try to cancel your negative, angry feelings by taking a moment, stepping outside whatever situation is setting you off, and counting up to 10, then back down again, repeating the word "Calm" between each number. This will buy you a few seconds to think about why you're angry and what the consequences of exploding will be, during which time you'll hopefully cool down."
