Adrenaline problem online

I've been playing for about 2 years now and I have a problem. Every time I play poker I get this unpleasant adrenalinerush that makes my heartbeats go up, I get really sweaty and its really not pleasant.

It is giving me a little anxiety to play so I kind of dread to play. I love the game and really wants to put in more hours playing and not just watching or reading/learning about it. I would have though it would have gone away by now when I have played around 1500 Sng's.

Question: How do you feel before and during playing poker? And any tips of how to fix this problem?

Wow, this is the main reason I play online poker, besides making my name and fame... You need some supplements to mellow you out. Here are a couple:

STRESSIVIN: http://www.hellolife.net/stressivin/

SocialFear Relief: http://anxietyreliefstress.com/socia...ocial-anxiety/

Personally, I would try the first product first. Their products are all natural, extremely effective, and do not require a prescription. I just recently purchased a big order with them because of the positive response I had with my first try. The product has a lot of positive reviews as well.

You'll find that each product provides a clear description and outlay of the side effects that they treat.

Re: Adrenaline problem online

Have you tried meditating? it helps . It doesnt have to be super "dramatic" meditating. Or the "hippie" way of meditating. You can just kneel down(both knees) for a little bit and just breath deeply and calm down.

I read something where it said focus and think of something like a cloud with wind blowing in or around the cloud with each deep breathe you take (it helps to focus while meditating).. and i would do it for a couple minutes or how ever long I needed to.... it helped me
