How to get over being scared of heights ?

I need some advice ASAP 

So in May or June my cousins and I are planning a cousin trip to Cancun Mexico and I am scared of going on planes mostly bc I’m scared of heights 

But I don’t want to miss out on all the fun just because I’m scared of going on planes ✈️ what should I do

    I too am afraid of heights, but looking out of the window of a jetliner doesn't frighten me. (Small planes are a different story.) This is because the jetliner is a strong structure and the window is small, so I know I'm not going to fall out or anything.

    It isn't the same as being on top of a tall building or on a cliff, as the perspective is very different.  As 7 stated, get an aisle seat, and if you are very worried, see if you can bum a Xanax off someone.

    Sit in an aisle seat. You won't even be aware that you're up high. Most people with a fear of heights- standing on top of tall buildings, for example- are not bothered by flying. Get a doctor to give you a tranquilizer to take on the plane.
