What can help me control my anger?

ANSWER

If you’re having problems with anger, a licensed mental health professional can help you learn ways to change your thinking and behavior. They can help you deal with your anger in an appropriate way. Ask your doctor if medicines could help. Avoid alcohol, short-acting benzodiazepines like Xanax, or street drugs that can make you say or do things impulsively. Make sure to talk to a professional who is trained to teach anger management and assertiveness skills.
