I don't always have heavy tics they come periodically more or less.
And so it's just once in a while a problem for me.
I don't have much experience in changing them.
How do you do that?

I've got a lot of different ones and which ones I get depend a lot on the position of my body. I am able to control them by concentrating on my forehead. The vocal tics aren't loud, but used to have like 10 different profanity words or phrases I'd use a lot, like dozens of times a day. Lately it's only a few ones and not as often, but it's all things like "kill people" "going to kill people" I'm going to kill people" "I'm going to kill everyone" "I should have killed everybody". Not really Tourettes either since I didn't get it before 18.
My tics mostly just happen. I'm not getting any urge to do them. I sometimes get some knowledge of it a couple of seconds before it happens, but it's rare and I'm not able to stop it based on it, just make it appear somewhere close by in the body instead. Suppressing them (by focusing at the 3rd eye) doesn't make it build up. It's beginning to seem to be as though my muscle-spasms are triggering immediate tics in the same body parts, in the arms at least.
I've been thinking the tic words in my head sometimes instead of saying them out loud. Also I've been getting intrusive thoughts a lot lately. It doesn't bother me nearly as much as it probably should, but it's repetitive and sometimes making my head feel as if I've been concentrating hard.
