hi reg, Well like you I have certain phobias too.I'm scared of the dark too(in fact I did start a discussion about it).They said the only thing to get rid of it is to face it...I am trying to get rid of my fear of the dark - I don't know why too..still trying though.But I don't think so I can face snakes LOL....

i think you should expose yourself more to those that scares you. have someone to be with you when you do it so they can help you.

Hello! We all have our fears and if we know how ,we can get rid of them and be pretty much happier. But living without fear will be a little odd[ i don't really think there's something like that..we are all scared of something] I was suffering from extreme acrophobia and I got rid of it by climbing on my house. I forgot how this therapy was called but it worked for me. I have also a fear of snakes ,dogs ,tight spaces and serious relationships :) You should go check a psychiatrist to get high quality ,professional help.It's the safe way to go.

We all have diiferent phobias. We all have our ways of reacting to them. I believe there is only truly one way to rid yourself of any phobias you may have. The only way to rid yourself of a phobia is to confront it. Once you have faced your phobia, it's power and control over you is diminished. You wll have your life back again.

Best way I found is to confront it! I used to be afraid of spiders, but then my uncle showed me how to play a 'yo-yo' with a spider. I was not afraid of spiders ever since...
