Hello, new here
My name is Caty, otherwise known as procrastinating student, and I've finally decided to come to terms with my problem.
Procrastination is affecting my life, and I want to stop before it kills me--or at the very least, makes me ill. Being a student, I often procrastinate by playing mindless games or watching YouTube videos to ease away the stress. However, that has taken its toll on me. My grades have fallen dramatically, and I struggle with the courses which I once whizzed through. I've pulled one too many all-nighters, and now I've seemed to have developed insomnia, which keeps me awake, using the computer compulsively for hours. My main problem is that I have a very addictive personality in certain cases-once I start doing something, I don't want to stop (unfortunately, this doesn't apply to studying!).
I've stopped taking up jobs in the community like I used to, telling myself I will do it later. I’ve also gained weight,convincing myself I will exercise later, that I’m too tired now.
Anyways, I want to stop these destructive habits from taking over my life—starting now. If anyone has any tips or suggestions, it would be much appreciated.
