You can always find it free online, try it for a while, and then buy it if you find it helpful. It's quite a different experience from reading a book and doing exercises that way.

Same here - my anxiety has gone down a lot just after a couple of months.

That's good to hear - I struggle to make myself do it for half an hour a day (there are so many other interesting things to do), and often wind up forgetting about it. But even doing it so sporadically it's been really helpful, even better than the CBT I did 20 years ago with a therapist.

But I'm going to try to set a time for it every night, like 9-10pm. Otherwise I keep putting it off until it's too late.

"Sometimes I wonder how all those who do not write, compose, or paint can manage to escape the madness, the melancholia, the panic and fear, which is inherent in the human condition." ~ Graham Greene

My heart aches, and a drowsy numbness pains
My sense, as though of hemlock I had drunk,
Or emptied some dull opiate to the drains
One minute past, and Lethe-wards had sunk
