My name if Farooq and I just signed up today. I have read Coach Lee’s 2nd edition in the past, and have been trying to use some of his methods, along with other things I have picked along the way.
I have been stuttering in various levels of severity since I was a boy, and am now 55. I think my stuttering is mild now, but the life long fear of stuttering is something that I really need to get over.
I have also signed up to attend the Zoom meetings and hope to get a lot of that too.
Thanks and best wishes to everyone here!July 2, 2020 at 10:45 am #27290JavierModerator
Hi Farooq!! Welcome to WSSA! My name is Javier and I’m one of the coaches here. I strongly recommend you to read the 3rd Edition of “Stuttering and Anxiety Self-Cures”. It’s almost twice as long, and 4 times better. I also encourage you to begin the online course about this book, and feel free to ask us any questions here at the forum.
Of course, we will be pleased to help you beat stuttering in a coaching session. We will be able to give you much better advice and expedite your self-cure. Some mild cases have only needed a few sessions!!July 3, 2020 at 2:15 pm #27297Doug NelsonModerator
Thank you for joining us. We are all one big family. We have all stuttered and some still battling it so we know what you are going through. I’m 59 about the same age as you so I will tell you, you are never too old to beat this thing. I did it in less than a year posting my success story this year. I am now in the WSSA Hall of Fame and training to be a coach. All you have to do is work the system every day. Read Lee’s Third edition is a must like Javier says. Thank you again for joining us and get ready to change your life.

Thanks so much for your reply! I will definitely read the 3rd edition, and take the online course. I am so impressed with all the resources on this website. I especially like the blog articles that you and the other coaches have shared!July 3, 2020 at 9:54 pm #27300
Hey there Doug!
Thanks so much for the warm welcome and kind thoughtful words of encouragement!
Its incredibly inspiring to know that you have accomplished so much in such a short period of time Doug! Congratulations!!!!
I have had varying levels of improvement with my speech fluency, over the years, but could never feel 100% confident in certain speaking situations.
That’s why I think what Lee put together is so amazing. It seems to have all the ingredients for me to finally get to that holy grail place where I can express myself anywhere with anyone regardless of the situation. I can see light at the end of tunnel buddy!
Anyway, thanks again for welcoming me Doug, and I hope to speak with you in the future!July 5, 2020 at 7:58 am #27303Leah AreffModerator
Hi Farooq, I definitely agree, I implore you to read the 3rd edition as soon as possible. Will we be seeing you at the next Speech Masters Club on Saturday, July 11, 2020, at 9 am New York Time? Remember that you can speak as much or as little (or not at all) as you’d like. Also, you are more than welcome to type in the chat section in Zoom and I will read your comments/questions to the Speech Masters Club host.
Doug gave an inspiring speech yesterday, we were all in awe. He spoke with such passion and feeling. The great thing about this world is that we have all been through or are currently going through the same journey as you. It is unlike other places where people still stutter/ have never stuttered. See you soon!July 5, 2020 at 8:17 am #27308JavierModerator
I love your enthusiasm. I’m sure you’re going to beat stuttering!! Here in WSSA you have all the tools needed.
I hope to see you at the SpeechMasters Club meetings. I’m sure you’ll be impressed, have a good time, and more important, you might learn something new about how to improve your speech. Have a great day!July 8, 2020 at 8:40 pm #27341
Thanks for your reply!
Yes, I am reading the 3rd edition and am loving it!
I received my invite to the Speechmasters zoom meeting the other day and look forward to attending it this Saturday!
And yes, this is a great place that has been established! I really hope it gets more exposure to PWS. It is an amazing resource. If this material had been available when I was a teen, I know my life would have turned out much than it did, but better late than never! lol
I look forward to seeing you on Saturday Tasneem!July 8, 2020 at 10:20 pm #27342
Thanks so much for your support Javier! I look forward to seeing on the zoom meeting this Saturday!
