Step 1: Know what is inappropriate Know when it is inappropriate to laugh. If you are unsure, ask your mother, or someone you can trust. Step 2: Check others Check out others in the room to see if they share your impulse. If they don't, divert your attention quickly by starting another conversation. Step 3: Think of sad things Think negative or sad thoughts to dampen your mood. Tip It's usually tension that precedes outbreaks of inappropriate laughter. Step 4: Pinch yourself Pinch yourself or bite the inside of your mouth or your lip to contain yourself. Physical pain can quell laughter. Step 5: Disguise your reaction Disguise your reaction by faking a coughing fit, using your hand to cover your grin. This allows you to leave the room and compose yourself. Step 6: Let out air Clamp a hand over your mouth and exhale quickly to rob the laugh of fuel. If caught, apologize without trying to explain, which may add insult to injury. Tip A laugh can appear to be a crying fit if you are at a funeral or in a sad situation, but it will take good acting. Step 7: Grit to avoid Grit your teeth while pushing your tongue against your pallet. If you have to release it, do it without a smile so people aren't sure what you're responding to. Did You Know? Did you know? Pathologic laughing or crying can result from severe brain injury.
