Hi, I have a serious anger management problem. Because I was angry on me i broke my Cell phone yesterday. After an hour I realized i broke my cell phone in countless pieces. This is not the first time it is happening this is the 4th cell phone of mine in two year that i broke when I am angry. The reason for my anger may be different but I always end up with breaking my cell phones. Guys do you have any kind of suggestion that helps me in managing my anger. Because this anger of mine proving costly for me now. So any kind of positive and negative comments are welcome. Thanks In advance. Regards, JnK

Yeah, i ever broke it once when i'n feeling angry, as well as drunk during that time.. haha =D IT was over my first gf back then, and thus i just wanna vent my frustration by throwing things.. It so happened that i was holding my phone and thus it became a victim of my anger.. lol =D For your case, it should be the same thing too.. If u are holding something else in your hands instead, u will be throwing those things instead of your cellphone ^_^ There are many ways of controlling anger, while the easiest will be walking away from what makes u flare up ^_^

Walking away from the things may me angry I should try that. Perhaps sometimes I cant do, I cant walk away from my Girl Friend or my parents, if they are the reason I am in anger. But I should try your suggestion for other this which I can control. Anyways thanks for sharing your experience and giving me your valuable suggestion. Have a nice day ahead, JnK

U can still walk away.. Dun worry about that.. Because it's better to do so, rather than venting your frustration in front of them, making them feel scared, or see the horror side of u ^_^ IN a way, when walking away, nobody will be hurt in the process..

You are right about scaring people. It does seems like that now a days my mom thinks twice before she starts speaking to me. Sure I will try not to get angry, If I am angry then I will definatley try to walk away just for my best and others best too. Thanks my friend Kun, you always share the most valuable experience and suggestion to me. Have a nice day buddy. Regards, JnK

No i have taken out my anger of an inanimate objects its not worth, taking our anger out on those is making us angry again, because when we would realise that we broke one article only we are going to suffer so I never take my anger out on those rather I take i out on the people who made me angry by telling them why I am angry.

I think its better to break things rather thank taking anger on people. Ya we can take anger on others whom you are not so concern. But if the person who causes your anger is one of the most important person in your like like parents or girlfriend would you take that action. I wont, So I break things instead. Let me tell you the another truth, when I don't have anything in my hand to break I heart myself. Thats the person I am, If I take anger on others there are chances that I wont prefer. Anyways thanks for sharing your view on my discussion. Have a nice day ahead. Regards, JnK

I have never broken any cell phones. I have only ever owned one of them and I still have it and use it. I think i might buy a new one later on if this one gets broken though.

Ohh Great, No cells phones broken yet.... Is it because because you never get angry or you dont have any habit of breaking anything when you get angry.? Thats the thing I really want to know from you. Perhaps you could share me some genuine tips about anger management. Thanks for responding to my discussion, have a nice day ahead. Regards, JnK

i have did it twice and when i feel angry i would throw anything that is near to me and after facing severe financial crisis now iam afraid to break anything and i even feel it as a foolish thing i used to do and we can ofcourse control it if we think about it once even in anger which is mostly possible except for a fewtimes when you feel yourself uncontrollable.

You are right in case of financial crisis, For example My First cell phone which i broke was costing around 16000 RS around 334$ after breaking several cell phones i am using a 41$ cell phone of Nokia. He hee, now a days it feels like i could saved at least 30000Rs to 40000$Rs thats almost 700 to 800$ if I haven't broke any cell phones. Thanks for response, Have a nice day ahead. JnK

hi jnk3dfx hi again count to ten and then fifty and hundred if that doesnt work, try counting backwards, you will get caught up in the silliness and your anger will dissipate.if this doesnt help I suggest you find anger management classes at your local junior college or ask your doctor to give you information on where to find them in your location. you need help and those give it to you.

Hamnn, But Counting numbers which will be far from is for me when i am in anger. Because when I get angry my brain get stuck, it never think of anything. So counting number is not good option for me. But You next suggestion are I can try myself. Perhaps I heard from my friend there are courses which I can join to control my anger beast. Anyways thanks for suggestion they are precious, JnK

Anger is a secondary emotion, it is always preceeded by a primary emotion (like hurt, fear, loss, etc.) which then kicks into anger. Anger is actually necessary for our survival, but not as much anymore as when we were living in the woods. It is basically a defense mechanism. But again, it comes from the times when we were liable to be attacked by a lion or warriors from another tribe. So what I would suggest here is that you look into yourself and find out what was the primary emotion that turned into anger, and work on that one. Working on the anger itself doesn't make much sense as long as you are unaware of its root causes. Again, they might vary, which would complicate things, or it might always be fear of loss (just an example), and you would have to work on that fear in order to get a grip on your anger. Good luck.
