I really want to know what it's like without DD all the time

I want to know what it's like not to be like this, what would you do you do to pass time when your bored?, how would you escape. idk what i would do without it, but lately i've kind of wanted it to stop. I feel so trapped in my imaginary world, I want to be a doctor when I'm older, so to do that i need to get better grades especially in math, so I planned to practice over the summer (thats what I am supposed to be doing right now) but I can't, I can't help it but DD. this morning i woke up at 9am, and decided I would start reading my summer reading book, but I was so distracted I started DD and didn't get out of bed until 12. ugh sometimes I feel like it's such a drag.

@Jennifer! I envy you a lot. I wish I could do that, though I have never really tried. I did realize that excessive DDing had to do with not having anything to do with yourself/being bored. If I am doing something I enjoy its fine. But I wish I could be able to stop DDing even when I am doing something I don't enjoy. I always DD whilst reading  something that I  don't find interesting, and I wish I could stop!. I think I will try i just don't know where to start.

Hey there!

Not too long ago I posted something about not daydreaming for 2 weeks and how much progress I've been making. I said, "Now I FINALLY know what it's like to not be daydreaming all of the time!" And it was wonderful! ...But then I cracked and finally daydreamed again not too long after posting. :/ But what I did to keep myself from daydreaming was occupying myself all of the time. Do you have interest with something? Football? Soccer? With me, it's music and singing.So, to keep myself from daydreaming, I would go and make my own music and record songs a lot. Doing what I loved stopped me from daydreaming and it REALLY helped It really did. You just have to be dedicated to stopping and doing what you love to do, and you'll be surprised at how easy it really is to stop for a while. Play a sport that you love, read, sing, draw...Do something and try different things out to see what you just might have a passion for. ;) I'm 15, so I'm also a teenager. ^.^

Good luck!!

Before I started DDing, I was obsessed with books. I could not stop reading. I think that could have played a part in me bcoming so absorbed in my imagination. When I first started DDing, it was always about books.

It was hard for me to contol how much I dd'd when I was a teenager. I just couldn't help it. Now that I'm older it is much easier to schedule time for dd's. But as a young person you have lots of school things to get done and if you pursue your dream of being a doctor (I hope you do!) then there's lots more school. I have been unable to become lost in dds lately and all I seem to do is watch tv and surf the Internet when I normally would be dding. It's slowly coming back but I wish I was out doing all of the things I have dreamed of doing all these years. My advice is to be firm with yourself. You can set aside dd time but first you have finish A, B, and C. I know it's really tough though. I definitely sympathize with what you're saying! Jen
