Q: 

how to overcome social Anxiety Disorder?

A: I have social anxiety and am going to an anxiety workshop that's a couple weeks long. I am just starting it so I will tell you about some things I learned this past week and some things I have learned along the way that may help. First of all, and this is for the long run, slowly cut down and then get yourself off of caffeine, white sugar, nicotine, and alcohol. Don't just go cold turkey or you may feel panicky tomorrow just from withdrawal, but cut down a little tomorrow, maybe. Also, drink lots of water or sugar and caffeine free liquid tomorrow. A lubricated body doesn't lend itself well to tension. When a body is tense...


Q: 

how to kick social anxiety in the nuts?...

A: Sandy Sandbox is correct. Humans (all of us) overthink things. Whether it''s what the girl is going to say to you when you ask her out/what the reaction from everyone is going to be if she declines or accepts or what everyone is going to think of you if you go to the party but you''re the only one that doesn''t drink or smoke. These are things that you do not have to be afraid of. I was always afraid of these exact things up until I was a junior in high school. I decided to take every action that I wanted to do (within reason) and do it. No matter how ridiculous, or...

Q: 

how to reduce social anxiety?

A: Hi there, First off, please do not start smoking weed as stated by some idiot. It may make you feel good shortly, but it`s habit forming and is seriously detrimental to your mental health in the long run. I have social anxiety too, and I know how difficult it is to overcome. I`m at University and sometimes I can`t even leave my room when I know people are around me (what if they ask me a question I can`t answer, what if I stutter, speak in a monotone etc.) These are maybe all familiar to you. I`m glad you`ve made the decision to stop...

Q: 

When Iam in unfamiliar places among people I start to feel nervous and shaky .I don''t know how to overcome the situation?

A: You need to expose yourself to this fear. The more you go out, the easier it will become. There is nothing to fear than fear itself. A lot of fears are unfounded. Be brave! Though this world sometimes sucks, we need to confront our fears head on. I was a shy child myself, fearing people as if they were gonna eat me alive when I was a little child, but I overcame this childhood fear by asking myself, ''Why do I fear? Must I really fear? People/events have no real power over my being if I don''t allow myself to be ruled by fear, so why must I imagine fear itself? What''s in it for me? '' And I tell myself, ''Fear, go away!! There is nothing you could do

Q: 

Help me overcome social anxiety?

A: 1. "Plan" something to say. If you hear something funny about a certain topic that comes up often, save it. Having a go-to thing to say that you think will make people laugh will make it easier to speak. If you do say it and people laugh, they will automatically like you more and you will feel less pressure to not make a fool of yourself. 2. Realize everyone is afraid of saying something stupid, and the odds of saying something so stupid you get made fun of is unlikely. 3. Establish confidence. Easier said then done. Work out or something. 4. Start small. Baby steps. Start by joining in when the group...
