How to stop thinking about stuttering?

Hello all,

My speech is about 95% when i not thinking about what im going to say next but when i asked something and i have to think about what i have to say or if im asked to repeat something i just said, i just cant speak i just lock up for a few second and have to jerk my head or arm to get talking again!

Has anybody else got this kind of problem?

Exact same problem myself. Giving a prepared speech in front of a group can be a nightmare. The more you think about it the worse you get. So jsut think about something else. For me i just try to concentrate on breathing correctly. Thats tends to relax me a little. Or maybe the hypnotherapy i had all those years ago actually did work.

I think that if your speech stands at 95%, it means that you're very close to fluency. So you should capitalize on that in order to increase your confidence.
