How To Overcome Your Speech Problem

By Steve Hill

Do you have a speech problem or speech impediment? I have managed to overcome a stutter which had had a major negative affect on my life for eighteen years. This article describes about how to overcome a speech problem and how to achieve fluency.

According to recent figures around one percent of British people suffer from the speech impediment known as stuttering. Stuttering can also be known in some regions as stammering.

I myself had a stutter from the age of four and during the period when I had the speech impediment, I had a fear of certain words beginning with certain letters. Any words which began with "b" were especially hard to say. I also had a fear saying words which began with d, v, g, and p. The way I would cope with these words was by either avoiding them or by findng an alternative word to say. This was not always easy and these difficult words were always on my mind. My goal was to eventually be able to say all words without any fear.

Many different situations would be affected by the stutter, for example I found job interviews very stressful as I would stutter more when I was under pressure.

At the age of sixteen, I became drunk for the first time. The results were quite amazing as I could now talk really well. The alcohol had given me a huge but somewhat false confidence boost. The fear of stuttering disappeared and the words began to flow.

Unfortunately the fluency did not continue in the morning. Feeling very tired and hungover, my speech impediment returned in a big way. The previous nights experience had though, for the first time given me a belief that one day I could possibly eradicate my stutter.

It goes without saying that you should not be in a permanent drunken physical state, however that what I needed to do was to be in a permanently drunk mental state, for example I had to stop worrying so much.

There are many forms of stutter treatments out there including tradional speech therapy, group speech courses, one to one speech courses and even hypnotherapy. I personally believe that the way to go is one to one speech courses as every person who has a stutter is an individual and has an individual stutter.

There is also self help stuttering therapies available via stuttering ebooks and dvds.

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
