If you have a serious problem with anger you probably already know it, and your loved ones most certainly know it. If you are uncertain about the seriousness of the problems, there are some clear, unequivocal signs that characterize a person who has a serious difficulty in controlling anger. For example, after having been exposed to an anger-provoking episode, you may develop some specific emotional feelings, some recurring thoughts and ideas, or recognizable physical and behavioral symptoms.  Another way to tell if anger is a serious problem: if anger has caused you to jeopardize intimate relationships, friendships, work relationships, or if you have been mandated by a court order to seek anger management counseling. If one or more of these signs are present, I hope you will take the opportunity to make a definitive, lasting change in the way you handle your anger, the strongest of emotions. Not sure "just talking" will help?
