Almost Uncontrollable Urges's blog

Driving into a Guardrail | August 5, 2008

The results if my urge was not controlled

The results if my urge was not controlled

Date of Urge:

Once a week

Time of Urge: While driving on the expressway

Location of Urge:  Car/expressway

Description of Urge:  While driving along the expressway, and most often while going around bends in the road, I have the almost uncontrollable urge to drive into the guardrail.  Not to T-bone it.  That would be silly.  Rather, I’d like to, at 70 miles per hour, just scrape up against it and see what happens.

Urge Controlled:  Fear for my life, or the life of others if the car should spin out of control.  Also, I could not afford it monetarily.

Side-Urge:  A less strong a.u.u., but still present, is the desire to drive off of an exit ramp into the ditch below.

  1. I constantly have the almost uncontrollable urge to try a J-turn in my car. Just throw on the E-brake, spin the wheel and see how it turns out.

About author

What do we consider an almost uncontrollable urge? Well, first we need to establish a definition. Almost: al*most, [awl-mohst], -adverb, meaning: very nearly. Uncontrollable: un*con*trol*la*ble, [un-kuh n-troh-luh-buhl], -adjective, meaning: incapable of being controlled or restrained. Urge: [urj], -noun, meaning: an involuntary, natural, or instinctive impulse. Therefore, an almost uncontrollable urge is an involuntary, natural or instinctive impulse that is very nearly incapable of being controlled or restrained. These A.U.U.'s occur mostly in public settings, as there is very little to constrain a person in a private setting. The urge is frequently overcome due to any number of things, such as: societal standards, fear of retribution, fear of prosecution, fear of being left alone after having embarrased a significant other for the last time, etc. This is simply a list of several of the AUU's that we have had.
