Fear of flying
If you don't like flying, you are not alone. Fear of flying is one of the most common phobias in the world. More than 10 million British adults are afraid of flying. In America, this number is more than 25 million. Many famous people hate or hated flying: Ronald Reagan, Aretha Franklin, Mohammed Ali, Cher and Billy Bob Thornton are only some examples.
I hated flying. I knew that planes were very safe, that they were safer than cars (about 29 times safer), and the chances of being in a plane accident were about 0.0000000004%. But every time I was at the airport, I felt terrible. I couldn't get on the plane. The only problem was that I loved travelling. And if you love travelling and hate flying, that is a problem.
After many years, I decided to do something. A friend told me about a special course for people like me. It was a one-day course at the airport. There were more than 100 people on this course. The first part of the course was a class with a pilot. He explained exactly how a plane 20 works, and showed us all the different parts. I liked that because it helped me a lot. Then we had a long talk with a psychologist. She gave us information about phobias and taught us a relaxation technique.
Then we had the most difficult part, a 45-minute flight. We were all still very nervous. Some people held hands, and some people cried. But we all did it. At the end of the flight, I felt nervous and tired but very happy. I could get on a plane and survive. The next day, I booked a ticket to see my brother in Hong Kong. It was the first time I visited him.
That was three years ago, and I don't mind flying now. But I don't like eating on planes, and no course can help me with that!
