    im a very angry person and go from 0 to angry in seconds and i hate it.
    i feel its stopping me from being happy but i just cant shake it.
    the tiniest thing will annoy me and it goes from there and i cant seem to blow steam no matter how hard i try.

    how else do people calm themselves? id rather help myself then go to professionals

    I'm bad for this too

    Trying to reduce as much background stress really helps as a lot of the time, its built up stress that causes us to lose our tolerance and then snap at the slightest thing.

    I usually walk away from the situation and do something to distract myself until I've calmed down (e.g. listening to music). I find going for walks alone when I'm angry helps to calm me down a lot.

    Ranting in a journal usually helps as well.

    Same for me but there are ways you can cope with the stress better and things I find help are exercise, eating healthy, cut out drinking or at least tone it down, join a support group or find a hobby. None of these will cure you or change what has caused your underlying stress but might help with your anger issues but if it does get worse or interferes with your relationships, therapy or counselling would be a good choice, especially if something has happened that has made caused the stress and anger build up.

    For me, PMS set me off as well. I still had the stress every other day but it became even worse when I was due my period so I went on the pill and it became worse on that pill but after trial and error, I've found the pill for me and its improved my moods a lot. Could hormonal problems be an issue for you too maybe?

    keep a mood journal. they make apps now for recording your overall mood daily, i have the app for android and it's called Daylio. i was like how is this going to benefit me so i google mood journals purpose and according to psychologists it's meant to make you realise what kind of things trigger certain mood.

    Get away from whatever is making you angry, try to think about something else, drink water, and listen to music if that helps 😉

    Identify your anger triggers and lower your (high) expectations (on yourself, others, objects and situations).

    Relaxed breathing techniques can also be a useful vent for your emotions and physical tension. You'll need to practise it regulalry to be proficient with it.

    Become more self aware (you said that you would prefer to help yourself):
