Procrastinators Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from chronic procrastination.


Hi everyone,

I'm still trying to make sense of all the information on this site.  But at least I'll introduce myself.

I'm currently finishing my thesis.  My mom says I've been a procrastinator since Kindergarten, and I think I believe her.  ;)  I don't remember procrastinating until about 4th grade, but who's counting?  That was more than a decade ago. 

Anyhoo, I just thought procrastination was my particular problem and "I must be stupid" or something.  In the last few months I have become convinced that it is an addiction.  I was mildly hopeful that someone else might have thought this, too, so I searched for "Procrastinators Anonymous" and here I am!  :)

Already I've found a few things that I can implement now and they are helping.  I've started planning my days (obviously I'm not good at it yet).  I'd like to start doing check-ins but I'm afraid to.  Because then other humans would know I'm not perfect!!  But especially due to working on this thesis, I'm realizing what a death sentence chronic procrastination is and I'm willing to risk imperfection.  ;)  I think one of the books suggested here: "When Control Gets Out of Control" might be a good one for me to read.  Whatcha think?

Anyway, soon I will be leaving the ivory tower of school for *gulp!* a REAL JOB and I am terrified of the chaos and havoc that procrastination could wreak--in my career and in my personal life.  My husband will be in school for a few more years, so my income will be our only one.  That's a lot of pressure!

Well, I'm awake at this early hour so off I go to work on my thesis.  I can no longer put off check-ins since I've now introduced myself.  Tongue out  I look forward to getting to know ya'll.



We're not perfect yet either :)


Thank you

Oh good.  :)

Also: I'm working on my thesis at home, which from the articles here is apparently a bad idea for chronic procrastinators.  *sigh*  It does help to know I'm not alone, though.
