Well im dealing with panic atacks (im sorry about my english but is not my first language) and im practicing the steps that Tony posted in Lessons in Relaxation. But i have in my mind the toughts about the anxiety so i start to program my body to get ansious in an especial moment, so for example, im affraid of dating someone so i strated to think "that day you´re gonna be in a state of anxiety". By practicing de advice of Dimitry Halley and is very usefull in the moment that the panic atack try to take over. My question is: How can i change that toughts that are before the event? i know that the process is slowly but i want to know how to deal with that thoughts.

Thank you so much

Fish – I have found a the most effective way to stop panic attacks all together is to slow your breathing. It is the same as breathing into a paper bag and drawing the air in again because it lowers anxiety. But this method must be practised for at least 20 or 30 minutes a day for three months for it to rid you of what causes it. See http://dreamhawk.com/body-and-mind/the-slow-breath/
