The Magic of Coffee Beans!  Jack was right!  They are powerful!

Smelling coffee beans can unplug a flashback or emotional flooding.  Really?   Not Kidding.!  Coffee is a neutralizing aroma and our olfactory (smell) system is very close to where memories are stored in our brains.  When we take a whiff of coffee it disconnects the memory and helps you feel less anxious or overwhelmed.

So if you get flashbacks or are easily emotionally flooded carry a little satchel or baggie filled with coffee beans and take a whiff when you get triggered.
