exposure therapy, go into a library, shout "look at me" and let it go.

Sorry, I`ll stop ruining your threads now.

well farting is quite funny, especially when you do it in a bag and light it, or in someone's face.

What is the fear exactly, doing it in public? In front of friends or colleagues ? Among friends I would say best bet is to laugh it off, trying to hide could increase your anxiety about it. If in public they probably wont notice its you, so you can pull a funny face like "who did that".

One of the funniest things as a kid was me and my mates being dragged into the deputy head masters office, when after giving us a right shouting at, he screamed what have you to say for yourself and my mate farted so loudly, we were falling on his desk laughing. Ahh happy days.

During yoga class yesterday I was thinking "this has got to be one of the worst places to fart". You do all these excercises that aren't exactly helping you holding it in and then you're going to sit quietly meditating

The only thing I do is to hold it in while in public and just let it all out when I'm alone. I do not want to fart in public.

hehe, doesn't everyone fart during yoga?

Do what my mum does and cough to hide the noise, and if we notice and give her some stick, she blames it on the cough.

Just don't do it... The fear you feel is very normal, it's very easy to avoid doing it.

Strictly hang out with nurses/nursing students then. We're used to hearing people fart, so it doesn't even phase us.

That was the very reason I wanted to become one myself.
In fact, the only way nurses would hang out with me is if I became/showed interest in being one myself.

THIS ^^

fear of farting in front of people or fear or farting in general - even by yourself? the only way to really get over it is to fart in front of people really loudly or whenever possible and 'embarrass yourself' while laughing afterwards. it's really not that embarrassing! everyone toots

Always do what you're afraid to do.

Yes - you have to learn the art of the quiet fart, the root of the silent poot.

Practice makes perfect.

If it's bad, then you must go to the nearest restroom and let it all out.
