Hi. I am new to this site, but have a fear of heights and of flying. I have had to fly many times, and each one is met with terror, and alcohol. I have tried pills but nothing really works, because my anxiety is so high. I tell everyone I don't really have a fear of flying, but a fear of falling. I am going on a 10 hr flight to Europe this sat. Aug 16. I have taken another fear of flying course, but my anxiety was still getting really high, so I began doing hypnosis. I really think it might be working. So this is my suggestion to you. Hypnosis
Hello Heidi

I did think about hypnosis so thank you for your suggestion. I understand how you feel about falling. I am doing my best to think just about what I can see and to stop my imagination running away with me. The best thing is to make sure you have plenty to listen to or to watch. I am going to download some films and will have my relaxation voices on my iPod and films on my iPad!! I will also have some diazepam as a back up. Remember the plane is travelling at around 500 mph and the plane will not fall. I see you were flying on 16th August I really do hope it went well for you.
