How to Stop Laughing in Inappropriate Situations. There are times when laughter is not called
for. Because your charm may not be enough to save
you, try some other ways to stop the laughter. You will need Common sense Sad thoughts Physical
pain An apology and acting skills (optional). Step 1. Know when it is inappropriate to laugh. If you are unsure, ask your mother, or someone
you can trust. Step 2. 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 negative or sad thoughts to dampen your
mood. It’s usually tension that precedes outbreaks
of inappropriate laughter. Step 4. 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 by faking a coughing
fit, using your hand to cover your grin. This allows you to leave the room and compose
yourself. Step 6. 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. 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 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
