I can't promise this works for everyone, but I've found that I can manipulate my daydreams so they become boring or unpleasant. If you can make everything go wrong in your daydream world, the real one will seem more appealing.

 

I've spent the last few days imagining I'm right in the middle of the London riots, and it always pushes me back into reality, where I'm far away from London, safe and sound.

 

It doesn't always work of course. Sometimes you just end up daydreaming about better things.

I've been able to stop for months at a time by doing something similar to that.  Instead of makeing a boring day dream world, I sort of link a bad memory to my day dream.  Like fighting with my friends or my dog dieing so, when I start day dreaming all I can think of are those bad memories.  It brings me back to reality because I try so hard to forget those bad things.

Well, it's early days yet, I only finally admitted to myself that I had a problem on Monday morning. I'll try and think of other things but I always end up fantasising that it'd magically disappear one day. Oh the irony...

It's inevitable that my daydreams get boring from time to time. But that only forces me to think of something more interesting. Whenever they're boring, I feel miserable and sit around doing nothing, wishing I could get pulled back in. Sigh~ D:
