Why am I unable to urinate under pressure?

I'm having trouble peeing in a cup for work. I get very nervous and cannot pee, even when I have drank water and coffee. Please help me. What can I do?

Public bathroom hesitancy (parauresis). Quit taking drugs or smoking and the pressure will be off.

I'm a 69-year-old who had urethra reconstruction surgery, just over 1 1/2 years ago. I've had two dilatations. I believe scare tissue maybe the problem, but I'm not a doctor. I was hoping a stent would be a possible solution. I live in Northwest Indiana near Chicago. My local doctors recommend reconstruction again, does not make sense unless something is done differently.
