I have a fear of flying

I have no idea when did I develop this fear. I have been flying since I was young. The adrenalin rush in me shoots when I am about to fly. I get so nervous and together with this I have upset stomach that comes hand in hand. I don't what it is but there is a lot of pressure to my stomach. I do fly at least 5 to 6 times a year. My works and my passion for traveling makes me travel. But my fear don't allow me to travel more than 4-6 hours max. That is a limitation as well.

I did try many things so that my fear reduces. I've done things like taking herbal sleeping medicine, taking cold medicine that makes you sleepy, drink alcohol in the plane, watch my favorite movie, have my friends/cousin occupy me when flying, exercising, smile, go to the loo on the day of flying, partying hard the day before and not sleeping for flight in the morning and all that jazz. I have done it all. Nothing seem to work at all.

I guess I will have to figure it out and try new things. But for now, I just keep my ipad loaded, sit by the window and keep drinking water.
