Usually I deal with my anger internalizing it and keeping it to myself. If the person or issue will not relent and keeps the issue going--I will explode like a volcano from hell.

BUT--if my husband starts bitching, bossing me around or is angry with me, I will unglue and give it all back. It simmers for a long time afterward and I just need to be left alone to deal with it.

usually talk about it expressing feelings & thoughts w/ close friends - if I can't get it out of me that way, I find a way to physically & mentally express it till I'm exhausted, example: rip pages out of a phone book accompanied by saying one thing about the situation w/ each rip

I've had bad anger management issues most of my life. Usually what I do now is breathe and try to remove myself from the situation. Then later I'll try to talk it out with whoever made me angry. If they get hostile, I'll blow. I can only control it to a point. If I've cooled off and you start shit again I click out.

Working out has always helped me vent.

I usually bottle it up. I'm much more likely to cry than to yell or throw things.

Talking to others really helps me calm down when I'm angry.

Lol...actually, I will stay really quiet and walk away, then fight w/ the person in my head so I can get all the mean things I wanna say inside my head instead of it coming out of my mouth...then I will go back and have a nice discussion. Well, I used to, I'm back to yelling again but I really should pick up my other technique again, haha.

I usually beat the crap out of the bed with a pillow, lift heavy things, move heavy stuff, etc... Anger brings up way too much energy, and I need to get it out somehow.

I bottle it in. I was raised not to lash out or talk back, I'm slowly trying to change though...

Depends who it is. If its anyone other than my boyfriend, I vent to someone else. If it's my boyfriend, I'll raise my voice if I need to - it's the only way he'll listen.

I internalize, I tend to go be alone when angry.

I do tend to bottle it up,but I manage it better by taking it out at the gym. It seems to help.

I usually talk to my mom. She is my best friend and can give me really good, unbiased advice. There have been many times where she has offered a different perspective than mine. This usually helps bring me down from my anger cloud.

Even though I realize that I have a great deal of pent up aggression, I do much better keeping it in check than I used to. You really have to learn what works for you. My own observation of others however, is that even getting older does not necessarily mellow many people.

I used to just punch first and ask questions later. Then I tried bottling it up. Neither are good. What I do now is count to ten, tell the person I'm angry and then try to talk it over. If I need a walk before hand to calm down I inform the person I need to cool off a little first.

I try too talk about it. But if they are not listening or ignoring the situation then I tend to get loud.
