Over the last 3 years my fear of flying has increased. I fear it all: the months of anticipation to a flight, the airport, plane, falling out of the sky etc. I was due to go to Berlin in March for my 30th birthday, then there was a technical fault on the plane which meant we were stuck in in taxi for 2 hours while they fixed it. I freaked out, all the weird noises, the caltain wandering about...it was too much so I made myself and my wife get off the plane. I ruined my birthday but more importantly I took a step back by not going through with the flight.

I have read Keiths book and Im undergoing councilling for my fear yet I still feel terrified.

I have a flight on August 28th to Lindos, its 4 hours long. I really want to go but I feel Im dealing with 2 issues now: the fear of flying and staying on the plane!

Any encouragment to smash my fear and face it head on would be helpful

Yilyn - its nice to know you are all here for me, thanks for the positivity!

Ed - I know the feeling, my friends and family just want me to go ahead and get on with it. I love the 'thor like power'. We both can do the flights at the end of the month, let me know when you get to Chicago and I will do the same when I get to Greece. Its good to set a challenge and I believe it will both help us face our fears if we can prove we can do it as Keith says. Let me know what you think.

Hi Craig, I plan to fly at the end of the month as well. Chicago bound about 10 hours. I am too looking for "thor" like powers to smash through my fear. My uncle tells me to be a man for once and my aunt says to cry it out just before I go... So here I am just like you, you are not alone!!!

Hi Craig, the fact that you're on this site and doing something about the fear is a huge step.
You still have some time to your flight, so keep listening to Captain Keith's tapes. I'm sure you can do it, you have a whole community of people here cheering you on. Keep us posted on how you're doing!
