ANGER  

  • You were not born with an angry disposition.
  • Anger is a learned response and subconsciously driven path of least resistance.
  • A lack of confidence in one's potential and frustration with circumstances is often at the root of anger issues.
  • Anger makes thoughts illogical and clouds thinking processes, stealing clarity and focus. 
  • Habitual anger damages our physical, emotional and mental well being creates havoc in our relationships.
  • The use of substances to manage anger has short term positive gains for some, while for others substances fuel the fire.

Anger is an emotion that we are often taught to deny. When we are little and angry, we are sent to our rooms and told to stay there until we are ready to apologize for the emotion and put a smile on our face.

It might have been better to learn how to manage anger rather than be punished for it. Sometimes the feeling of anger is useful information. It tells us that something needs to change. However, when substances are used as an anger management tool few positive results occur.


Knowing I can have a drink later is the only thing that helps me calm down at work.

I’d probably hit someone if I didn’t use, it mellows me out.

It is intelligent to look at new ways to deal with frustration, hurt and irritation, and to address the self talk that feels the state of anger.

The subconscious mind of the angry person has accepted an angry persona. The ability to take a step back, gain perspective and choose new thoughts, feelings and behaviors in response to triggers needs to become the norm, rather then the exception.
