I try so hard to stop daydreaming but the stories in my head are too good to just let go and forget them, I think I use daydreaming as an escape, not as in I have problems in life that I wanna run away from but as in its getting boring, the same routine everyday and theres just nothing interesting going on and I dont have many friends ( I have social anxiety ) speaking of I think social anxiety and the lack of social interactions has something to do with daydreaming because if you're left alone in a room full of people (school in my case) and are not speaking to anyone because of your social anxiety, you're left with your own mind, your own thoughts, your imagination and nothing else, what are we going to think about ? Things that make us sad? No, things that make us happy? Yes; and if you dont have anything interesting going on in your life at the moment, you're probably going to think about interesting things you wish to happen with you, and soon these 'little things' start developing into stories and made up lines and conversations and even imaginary characters that are spent hours upon hours fantasying , you'll enjoy it for a while but then you'll realize how is it effecting your daily life, you cant focus on your study, and you'll just feel guilty because you just realized how much time you have 'wasted' daydreaming, true daydreaming can develop your imagination but its not your imagination you live in its real life that you live in, real life that is worth thinking of, but daydreaming what will it get you in the end? Nothing but regrets.

Your reasons for daydreaming are exactly my reason. Life is boring with nothing to do; which im trying to change. Mine is getting better with methods im using. I have relaspes however but I see alot of improvement. But your post is exactly my problem if I can rid of my boredom I can get rid of my day dreaming for good Instead of relapsing every few months
