Newbie here


 I am 21 years old and am desperate to end my procrastination now. I don't want to look back on an empty life.

My procrastination is having a serious affect on my life. If there is anything I can procrastinate on, I will do it. I'm always delaying diet and exercise which is now having serious effects on my health. My uni assignments are done within the last few days, resulting in low marks. I procrastinate from calling people to set things up, and if there is no deadline, it ends up never getting done, which means I have not gone out with friends in months and have not dated since high school. One thing i really hate is that i am determined to sit down and write out these novels that i have had jumping through my head for ages now, but i don't have the time to do that. i do however have the time to play computer games and watch the sci-fi channel all day long. I guess you're seeing my problem here. I want a life. This has to stop now.

Hello Enya,

I am also a student who is suffering from procrastination (see my thread), and I am still quite addicted to the computer. However, it's gotten better for me now, so I'm sure things will improve for you if you have the willpower and the perserverance (which, it seems, you do!). And this is coming from a person who used to stay up until 2 to play computer games and watch videos online, honestly. 

Let's be support buddies! Let me know how you're doing once in a while, and I'll do the same, and we can keep each other on track!


Congratulations on making it here Enya!

It appears you have amazing clarity Enya. You know yourself and you can clearly see the enemy you are fighting and the potential life you are fighting for.

With these you have amazing ammunition to transition to a mode of life that you know you have the power to lead.

I know how you feel living a shadow of the life that can be truly called living.

Make use of the chatbox, PA Materials Tools page and check-in forums to start taking a step towards that life today. Hope to see you around!
