Learning how to cure stammering was something that was top of my priority list not long ago. It was something I had suffered with since early childhood but I always assumed I would grow out of it; however as an adult I continued to suffer badly with speech. Read on to learn what I did to speak fluently and with confidence for the first time in my life and how you can do it too.
The main problem when learning how to cure stammering was actually coming to terms that there was no cure. After going back and forth to my doctor who kept making me do these silly speaking exercises that never really helped, I began to think that maybe I would be stuck with this condition for the rest of my life.
Growing up as a teenager with a stutter is probably one of the worst things a guy can go through, especially because other kids can be so cruel. I suffered badly with a confidence problem because of my stutter and this made it much harder to meet new people and make new friends. My social life was pretty poor, not to mention my lack of any type of success with girls! I mean what girl want’s to be with a shy, low confident stuttering guy anyway?
I knew that this was something I wanted to get rid of completely, not just learn to control, I wanted total fluency. I remember my doctor telling me to speak slower, so I did for a while. OK it may have helped a little bit but it made me sound like I was some sort of thick idiot! I didn’t want that, I wanted to speak normally like everybody else!
So I stopped going to see this doctor and instead went about trying to find out how to cure stammering my own way. After doing a lot of reading I realised that that the fact I was very shy and maybe even had a mild form of social anxiety didn’t help my problem. I discovered that I had to attack the root cause of my stutter.
In order to learn how to cure stammering I had to build up my broken confidence, and this is where it all begins. I met up with others stutterers and we discussed our problems together which really helped and we began to build our confidence with meeting new people and trying to be more open with people.
