I am new here. I am 27 and I think, I already procrastinated when I was a little kid (homework).
Then I had a really bad time around my early 20ies when I got really depressed about my procrastinating. I am still procrastinating but don't feel as bad about it anymore.
I found the aspect of addiction very interesting. I have to put away my TV regularly because I sit in front of it for hours even though most of it doesn't interest me. I eat all the sweets in one packet almost at once. When I go out with a smoker, I smoke even though I hate the feeling in my lungs and the taste the next morning.
I sometimes sit there and think that it would actually be fun to work on my stuff for uni but I don't do it. Like something is keeping me from it.
I am also really bad in celebrating successes. If I get a good mark, I only think, I could have done better and that it was pure luck. Or that people are giving good marks too easily because everbody tells me that my presentations are good even though I finished them at 4 o'clock in the morning and thus don't feel very fit when I present them.
I like the idea about doing things for only 13-30 minutes. But how can I get myself to really stop?
Hopefully, this isn't too long :-)
