"Thanks. It really did impact my life. I wish that it never started and I told my parents. I could've had a brighter future, especially if nobody found out—and I just didn't do MD. It wasn't easy to quit. Even years after…"

"Thank you for your reply. You've actually just reminded me that I was doing this. As I suspected would happen, the attempt petered out until I simply didn't think about resisting any more. On the plus side, I would still estimate that I…"

"Good for you! Trouble with me is I didn't do this. I achieved it another way. I scared myself. When I started the daydreams, I never stopped to think it's "not real." Low and behold, years and years later, I have a life that…"

"Quick update:Over the last few days I have found myself fantasising more than I did when I first started this attempt to kick the habit. I've even found myself immersed in some of the far-fetched but frequently visited scenarios that I have…"

"Thanks for all the replies.I knew my crude "just go for it" approach was going to appear very naive, but it's been so long since I made any attempt to quit I felt ready to give the ultra-simple approach a go first, before spending…"

"Thanks, Kalliope! I really like your practical suggestion "don't try eating healthy..." It is very true: big changes need all the attention, all the focus, we can't really make two changes at once."

"Hello Barnes, From my experience, you will need about half a year of work until you will succeed. In this half a year, don't try changing other stuff: don't try eating healthy or doing plenty of sports so that you don't fail in too…"

"Hi! It is hard this way. I mean it is hard to try to make it just with the strength of our will.  The risk is that if we can't make it, we blame ourselves, we think that we are weak, unworthy. We have a real problem, a real addiction. You…"

I'm going for it. I'm trying to quit.

Today is day two of my latest attempt to quit daydreaming. Yesterday I set alarms to remind me to check if I'd been daydreaming - each time I had been successful I multiplied the time by the square root of 2 (sorry, I thought doubling every time would increase it too fast, so I went for a factor of root 2). I didn't get beyond 45 minutes. Today I've been trying to be aware and stop myself whenever I catch myself. So far I've not been doing too badly - I haven't found that I've been daydreaming…See More

Hi,
