How to cope with anxiety from an expert

How to cope with anxiety–from an expert.

Scott Stossel, editor of The Atlantic, is a long-time sufferer of anxiety.
In a piece called Surviving Anxiety he writes about holding down a high-profile, high pressure job while being anxious about…well a lot!

Stossel writes:
“I’ve tried therapy, drugs, and booze. Here’s how I came to terms with the nation’s most common mental illness.”
He has trouble with public speaking and flying, two areas of great concern to many.
The article (an excerpt from his book) details how he copes and what we might learn from his experience and analysis. He writes:
“… two double scotches, when administered in quick enough succession, can obscure existential dread, making it seem fuzzier and further away.But none of these treatments has fundamentally reduced the underlying anxiety that seems hardwired into my body and woven into my soul and that at times makes my life a misery.”
