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.



Just joined; desperately need this forum. I'm entering crisis phase, a few days off 3 assignments due and an exam coming up with nothing started yet. I've had a problem with procrostination ever since I can remember, and reading here that it is an addiction makes perfect sense to me. I seem to be addicted to the crisis-rush and cant seem to do anything "the normal way". I've also struggled for years with other self-destructive addictions and a highly masochistic personality. Also Depression. I can see that this is part of a general trend in avoidance behaviour, yet it also "works" because I usually do get things done, and done well, out of it, and there is the emotional reward of finishing "despite..." the self-inflicted hurdles. Nevertheless this is a draining and awful way to function; when i'm not in crisis-mode (the one mode I do pretty well) I am sleeping or daydreaming......

I'm going to try the chunking 15-minute technique to clear up my wreck of a study, get organised and start the work.

And another thing....this is the worst time of the year for me. As usual I havent sent in anything to the tax dept yet, and xmas is looming. Yikes!

Good to be here though,



Hi snuffky --

 I definitely understand that crisis-rush addiction.  Welcome and I hope you find a lot of help/support here!
