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

Actually I joined last week but just got around to introducing myself.


I really am ready to make a change. Earlier in the year I went to a psychiatrist/therapist hoping to find an answer in pill form.  All I got was an antidepressant that did a great job masking my guilt/anxiety but did nothing at all to help me “do things”. Plus it was hell to get off of.


I have dug a really deep hole with my business & finances both personal and business.


Any suggestions on where to start?  This site is really overwhelming.

hi jpiz

i really hope and pray you find recovery here. i have. many others have. people here are indeed living a life in recovery from compulsive procrastination, just like so many in AA are living a life in recovery from alcohol.

i dont have any specific suggestions. But i do have some perspectives from my point of view that might help you. many, many people come here in your situation. Most never come back. the people who do come back recover. Please come back :)

Many people here tend to view their own situation as hopeless, when in fact it might not be that bad. I dont know your situation, but if it's like other people here it *feels* hopeless but in fact there are options. People have kept their jobs and businesses and relationships by working here.

What works for people here is day to day management of the procrastination addiction.

Thus, the most popular tools here are the Daily Check-ins at (you can see today's on the right sidebar), and chat at

Use the tools however they work for you. Check-in is the more permanent, concrete to do list - accountability place to start your day and refer back to and keep yourself on goal.

The chat is an ongoing motivational tool to help you stick to your check in. It's also a place to "talk yourself thru things." And, while working, ppl can hear chat beeps going off. we call that "beeps of solidarity" because it's comforting to know that we're all in this together, that people are in chat working thru their issues just like you, even if you're not reading the actual posts.

hth & welcome!
