I've just joined this site, and I am so much more relaxed knowing that other people have the same situation as me. As of today I've decided to stop daydreaming (I hope). Its put me into some pretty deep depression and has made my family worry about me. It got to the point where I was daydreaming for hours on end. In the past year I have lowered it to about an hour a day. But today I am deciding to quit and when I do (hopefully) I wanna share my expieriences with others and maybe help them too.

I have found that when I'm completely engrossed in something, I hardly DD anymore.  For me, that's designing with Photoshop.  Just try cutting down and eventually you'll find that you need smaller and smaller amounts to satisfy the craving.  I still have DD to fall asleep or I can sleep.  That's very odd, I know but it's been a habit for over 50 years :(

I think it is best to try to shorten the daydreams with a timer instead of just going cold turkey. That is too much pressure. That is what I do. I connect my daydreams to the music that I listen too. Sometimes I will allow myself 5 songs a daydream and then when the music shuts off I get back to work. :-)

Take my advice and trust me on this one don't pressure yourself to stop it won't help it would make you worse...just take it easy maybe try distracting yourself or something but when i tried to stop and i pushed all those daydreams away i felt empty and it was just the worst thing ever.

So if you want to stop try taking it step by step slowly maybe? cause you can't just quit like that like you might have withdrawal symptoms...but anyway Good luck and I hope whatever you do works for youu Xx

All the best! And yes, please do share how you are doing!

Welcome! Good luck! :-)

Warning: I've tried to quit MD before. Believe it or not you can actually have withdrawal symptoms (I guess MD really is just like any other addiction). Your brain will not be too happy with you at first. So don't try to quit around the same time that something important (finals for school, major family gathering where you know a lot of drama will probably occur, etc.) is about to happen.
