Ive always had bouts with anger. Still do. One thing I would warn against is trying to drink them away. That is a lethal combination. Something I used to do is lift weights, it dosnt really stop the rage, but it kinda slowes it. Its more a way to avoid acting on the urges, kinda like taking your dog for a long walk so it wont chew on the furniture.

Martial arts of any kind is a good outlet.

One thing that helped me with meditation in the begining, and at the time my  goal was to take a clear look inside myself was a dark blindfold and earplugs. Close your sences so they can only go inside. I will warn you though, you may not like some of the things you find.

I'm not a Martial artist, but I find working out is one of the BEST ways to help control rage. I just work out until I wear myself out, then I'm way to tired to be enraged anymore :-D I've been really p*ssed off lately and I've been working out for 2 - 2 1/2 hours a day for almost a week, AND now I've lost almost 15 pounds *Yay Me!* :lol:

I SO agree with Ravin!! Smoking them away with pot doesn't help either. Any way you slice it, drugs/alcohol are not the solution...

OK, I'm a were, and its hard enough to control myself (anger, "drives", hunting-instincts etc.), now imagine a high or drunk were??? Yes, def. NOT exactly a pretty picture as I used to be a major Pot-head, and was getting into heroin toward the end, trust me, I know what I'm talking about!! *<:) I only stopped because my girlfriend and family wanted me to stop...trust me being a high were is kind of awesome, particularily when in a Mental-shift <^>, but SO not recommended and not worth it... :laugh:

Ravin, I'm not sure if your a were/therian, but at least yours was *ONLY* a drinking problem (not trying to belittle it in the least), I drank too (alot), don't get me wrong...again drunk or high (or Drunk AND High weres :doh:), not exactly a great picture... :banplea: Happy 2 years sober to me!!!  :-D

Agreed! Very nice Arctic, well done.

Awww, thanks so much guys :-D I can't take credit for it though, for all intensive purposes it was my GF and my Mother that saved me from myself.

Getting off of heroin, pot and drinking was not as hard as getting over the addicting feeling of being a high were. How great is the feeling of being high on heroin and the feeling of shifting, now combine the two and see how hard it was for me to get rid of the "Rush" addiction rather than the actual substance addiction...:-o

I did pay for what I did, I lost some of my great singing voice to the fracking pot. I used to have a great voice that people liked to listen to, Esp. when I sang, now its all deeper and gravelly, and I hate my new voice sometimes, although I can now sing death metal perfectly, so I guess I traded singing Pop and Jazz for Death metal... <^> :gun:

You know what? That's something I didn't think of Arctic.

Thirteen, do you have any musical or artistic hobbies? Putting the emotions and energy you have into music or art is a great way to get rid of it. Not only do you have to face how you are feeling, but you're not bottling it up, and you're not hiding it. Communication all around.  :-D

I wasn't even thinking of that when I typed that, but music and art are the best way next to working out for me to control rage is to sing music, specifically Metal and Rap, so I can express my rage creatively... or at least non-destructively... *<:)

I do, actually. I'm in a band as a keyboardist (I play at home as well) that usually helps me express what I'm feeling, but after a while I get frustrated. :/

And I've always drawn, but I'm a perfectionist so you know there's bound to be issues.

Funny though, I actually bought a coloring book as kind of a mind-relaxing, no thought activity to do when I'm stressed to give my brain a break.  :-P

Awesome!

Haven't played any music myself in awhile... and I haven't drawn anything new recently. Partially because I'd smoke alot when I did either of those things... so I avoided it for awhile just to be able to quit.
Think I'll be picking the pencils back up soon though. I don't smoke, and I have plenty of hormone changes to deal with soon. It'll help, I'm sure.

I'm depressed, for instance... right now... because I don't have any Snickers Ice Cream Bars... Pathetic, yeah?   :-P

No shame in going back to childhood once and a while Thirteen...I used to be in a garage band in HS called La Clube Sanguine...I really like singing metal, but I've kind of moved on to rapping more now, I helped my raccoon-Therian friend produce a demo CD, though it didn't do well, it was fun to do :-D Singing is so relaxing to me, I guess the music tames the beast inside of me... *<:)  I just listen to Basshunter, Fort Minor or Three Days Grace and zone out when my brain needs a break...try listening to some of those bands, they're pretty good...I can send u some of my old stuff from HS too, if you'd rather listen to that, before my voice went to pot (pun intended)

@Teteo I get like that sometimes too. Depressed for no good reason at all. I always try to stay on the positive side of life, but sometimes its just too hard. Sometimes there's just too many factors that get to you.

@Arctic Love to hear it. I'm into most every music.

Sorry if I don't have much to say, I'm in one of those moods again.

@Thirteen - Thanks, I'm really into music too. I love to sing and I can play the guitar (electric or acoustic) and I like Metal, Techno, Latin Pop and Rap...no-shame in having an eclectic/international taste in music  :-D

@ Teteo - There's a reason that my singnature is what it is, its how I keep from being depressed, I hope it helps u too..."...If out of the deepest darkness, comes the purest of light, then we must ask ourselves... Would we know what the purest of the light is, without the dark..." - Me
