In high school I ran out of albuteral (we didn't have insurance) and someone's perfume and stress triggered an attack. A good friend sat down with me for about an hour and coached me to 'smell the coffee.. then blow on it 'cause it's hot' rhythamatically for about an hour until I was breathing well again. To this day that's the first thing I do when I have an asthma attack. It both calms me and forces me to breathe.
