When I practice sussokan as you advice where in the body should I keep my attention? When I think ooone twooo threee ... the attention is stuck in my head and it does not feel right. Should I keep the counting but focus on my stomach? That does not feel right either.

The counting goes right along with the exhalation, actually becoming completely one. If the consciousness is too strong, the flow of the breathing becomes unclear. If the consciousness is too weak, you easily get drowsy and filled with extraneous though. At this point it needs some practice to let it ripen and become naturally balanced.
