How To Stop Your Panic Attack Fast

By Adam Champagne

In my opinion, panic attacks or one of the worst disorders to have. I wouldn't wish them on my worst enemy. You constantly feel trapped, afraid, and worry about when the next panic attack will hit you. I have suffered from panic attacks for many years, but I found a way to stop them.

When I had my first attack, I thought I was having a heart attack. I had never experienced anything like this before. Once I realized I wasn't having a heart attack I began to calm down. However, it wasn't long before I started getting them all the time. Just the thought of having an attack would trigger a new one. The thing that initially helped me the most was when I found out that other people had panic attacks to and that there was actually a name for it. This made me feel like less of freak, because I thought I was the only person experiencing this.

Finding that other people suffered from the same condition as me gave me some relief, but it wasn't enough. I started reading everything I could get my hands on about panic and anxiety. All the books I read has very common strategies and ideas on getting rid of panic attacks and anxiety.

The first thing is that you need ask yourself "what am I afraid of?" I was always afraid of having another panic attack. Then ask yourself "why am I afraid of it?" I was afraid because I thought that I would die as a result of the panic attack.

Next, you need to ask yourself "what is the worst that could happen?" I thought I could die, that is all I thought about which ended up bringing on more panic attacks and put me in a constant state of anxiety.

Now that you've identified what the worst thing that could happen is you must prepare for the worst. I started doing research about panic attacks and anxiety disorders and I quickly found that people do not die from panic attacks. It just doesn't happen. This fact alone decreased my anxiety greatly.

It doesn't matter what triggers your panic attacks, 99% of the time that thing you are afraid of will not happen. Even if it does it usually isn't that bad, your just making it out to be in your head. It's a vicious cycle and the good news is that you can break this cycle!

There are a great many resources online to help you with panic attacks. The best thing I did was join a program that guided me through the process of getting rid of my panic attacks for good. It took me by the hand and guided me the whole way. I am glad to say that I am now panic free! - 30540
