One method is to go for cognitive behavioral therapy. This helps you to analyze the cause of your anxiety and teaches you to alter your thinking process. Psychodynamic psychotherapy is another option that helps take care of unconscious mental conflicts raging in you.
Take up yoga, deep breathing exercise, walking and remain strong and determined in your effort to do away with this habit. Drink plenty of fluids and water (not caffeine), eat fresh fruits and vegetables and keep yourself busy throughout the day. You need to discuss this with your doctor and get help from a psychiatrist to overcome anxiety. Hope this helps. Take care!
