I have tried not to daydream for about a week now. Yesterday and today I find myself doing it and I cry and feel extremely sad that I did it again. “I'm like an alcoholic with an unlimited supply of booze everywhere I go. When I do it too much I feel sick & dazed, yet I can't stop.” this statement is so true guys. today I feel like I am way too late to stop this is part of who I am and maybe I will be a daydreamer for the rest of my life. I feel sad that I cannot control this.

Thanks ShellyBelly. You and I are in the same boat. I also want to control people and scenarios and immediately when i can not get that in reality I settle for MDD. Stoping will require serious disciple bcoz yes you are your own dealer.

I am the same way. I also managed not pace with music for the last few days and then I slipped up. I swear it's like crack! Only worse because you're your own dealer. I too desire to stop. Ultimately I have linked my DD to a need to feel in control of people, situations and scenarios but oddly, it controls me. I am trying to accept that I  can not control everything or foresee every future. I think we have to find a way to give up that control and it isn't easy. Hang in there! :-)

Cordellia, I couldn't agree with you more. Staying busy is key and also interacting with REAL people. My creations are so predictable. I've played out their stories over a thousand times so it's beginning to make me bored (after 16 years of it). I crave experiences that are uncontrolled, surprises and real human interactions. Bonnie, nothing beats communicating with real people. I used to hate real people and that validated the purpose of daydreaming. When I let go of the anger from my past experiences with truly sad examples of family members, I found that there are REAL people in the world who actually are more interesting than the characters I create. It's worth trying. Meet someone new. Share a laugh with someone real. ;-)

Trying to force and guilt yourself to stop will only make it worse.  Try other things.  The only thing that helps me is distraction.  If I can become busy in the outside world, I naturally daydream less.  Try to find things in the outside world that you like enough to distract you.  Try to build a busy outer life, and then you'll need your inner life less.
