Hey guys, i've been at the anime expo recently which is why I haven't posted anything. But to update you all it hasn't been easy trying to stop. So far I've gone 2 days without daydreaming and today I did it in the morning. I feel terrible about it and I keep telling myself I'm going to stop but I don't know anymore. I really want to stop and I am going to start writing in a journal today to see if that helps. Thanks for all your responses I finally feel like I'm not alone in this situation. :)

Hello.

I have been trying to quit, too. It was going exceptionally well and I went two entire complete 24-hour days without DD and most of the third day, but at like eight at night I started daydreaming and basically haven't stopped and now it is two days later.

Okay, do not give up on this. I know that it is hard and sometimes it feels impossible, but there are people that have escaped for good and life will be so much better when this is over.

As a side note, is there a group on this site for people that are trying to quit MD? I in particular would find that really helpful, if there isn't one I probably will start one.

Hey! I know how you feel--but maybe don't try quitting cold turkey. Maybe if you allow yourself a certain amount of time per day to daydream--set an alarm or timer or something and once it's over, it's over. 

And the journal is a great idea! I've journaled, and I really like it, even though I'm not consistent in my journaling habits. That way you can still daydream, but having to write it down makes it...more concrete somehow, like a task.

Hi. Yes, do try journaling! I try to journal when I feel an urge to escape. I write down the particular scenario. 

Also make sure you have something else to think about. Just stopping leaves your mind feeling like "well, what now"? (preferably reality based.)
