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.

Getting started


 My name is Amanda. I am new to this site. I have only read a few parts of it but know I am in a place where people understand. I have always struggled with has been a family joke for many years...I've laughed along sometimes but I know it is not causes me (and people around me) so much distress and anxiety. I have tried many things (often as ways to procrastinate)...reading books, tapes, lots of self criticism etc.

 I have been addressing other patterns and behaviours over the last year...compulisive eating...alcohol...I am involved with a 12 step programme (Overeaters Anonymous) and also have been sober for 10 months now. I feel like this is the time to face things...I know from my OA group that isolation, fear and shame are blocks to my recovery.

I feel anxious and fearful that I will not be able to do this..that I will not 'cut the muster'...but I think back to my first connectin with OA and similar feelings and where I am now...not 'sorted' but along way from where I was.

Thank you for being part of this and for sharing yourselves


Best wishes
