Question about check-ins and chatbox

It seems that these are places for to-do lists (in the case of check-ins) and actively engaging with tasks (for the chatbox).  In other words, places for getting things done, which is what I am trying to avoid anyway.  I guess when I really set my mind to something, I'll do it.  Problem is, I am reluctant to make plans in the first place..  Procrastination got smarter?  Maybe it realized that once I decide to do something, I will carry it to completion; solution = not let me decide on any plans to begin with. 


So now problem I have is, I can't get (allow?) myself to post any check-ins or join the chatbox, because I'm refusing to have plans to begin with.  I know I could always micro-burst or something but procrastination will be very displeased with it, and it will probably work harder to keep me from getting started next time.  


I join the chatbox briefly but am tempted to just quit the chatbox..freeing me from having to tackle my tasks!

Oh well, stuck for now..  thanks in advance :) :)

i know how you feel. I do in fact use microbursting to outsmart my procrastination. Eg i will commit to logging in to chat, and not posting anything. Just log in and log out. Usually procrastination will see no harm in that. And maybe that will be it. If so, that's ok. It's a step in the right direction. Maybe tomorrow i will be able to log in, read one comment, and log out. But, maybe, i will get inspired by people working their recovery and start working my own. That's how i get thru that. I always try to find one positive thing i can do, no matter how small, no matter how delayed.

I agree with journey also, tho, dont give up. Keep trying. Eventually something will work. At least, that's what happened to me. My procrastination, seems like yours too, is a persistent problem. I've been here 3 years working on it. And continuing.
