* Water therapy :.

There was a woman who has been a victim of hot temper, she always quarrelled with her husband everyday out of anger, One day she approached a priest for solution to her hot temper problem,

the priest gave her a bottle of water and told her that anytime she's angry with her husband and her husband starts shouting at her ,she should take a mouthful of the water and hold it in her mouth without swallowing it until she's no more angry at that moment, the priest told her that if she does this without missing a dose ,that her hot temper will stop, the woman believed it and took the water home

she did as instructed and would held a mouthful of water whenever she's angry, her husband will shout at her till he's tired but she won't say anything but will only keep looking at him like a dumb person because of the water in her mouth, as time goes by, her husband stopped shouting in anger since his wife is now always calm,
this continued day by day till one day the woman was able to control her temper

without the water in her mouth,she now became calm like never before,she now talk thing things over with her husband without shouting at each other, and they lived happily ever after, when she returned to the priest to thank him,
the priest said, "Anybody who can control her tongue when angry can easily control his/ her temper" that's why I gave you that water to help control your tongue.

So therefore you also can try this water therapy, it can help you, but always have this in mind also NEVER SPEAK OUT WHEN YOUR HOT TEMPERED this is one of the first steps in stopping hot temper.
