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.

Hey, I'm new to the site

I've recently admitted to  myself that I am powerless against my procrastination.   This is a big step for me; while always knowing I was a procrastinator I never could admit defeat.  After barely making it out of HS, losing countless jobs, flunking out my first semester of college, getting on academic probation once I got into school again and being unable to keep a coherent schedule, I can now say I have lost control of my life due to procrastination.  I am glad to find a space where people take this as seriously as I do.   THERE IS HOPE FOR US YET!  I am certain of it.  I've already gotten a lot out of Pro's articles and I think this site is a Godsend.  I'm addictive escapism.... all the way.  I put off EVERYTHING POSSIBLE!  Even urinating.  I'm serious.  I am beyond lazy.  I'll even put off smoking pot even when I really really want to.  And of course smoking ganja only makes me procrastinate more.  Marijuana and procrastination go hand in hand for me and I plan to end both once and for all.  I'm here for support, advice, and peers who can truly empathize with extreme procrastination.

My name is Destiny and I am a procrastinator.

Beware identifying with procrastination

Procrastination is something you do, not something you are.  Don't think of it as something that is baked into you and unchangeable -- your procrastination habits can be unlearned.

Of course, you didn't get into this situation overnight, and you won't get out overnight either.  But you've made an important step by admitting you need help to make the change happen.  You've come to a great place filled with people who understand your situation and want to help you.

Welcome aboard!


Welcome, Destiny

Your entry gave me a little laugh.  It's amazing the procrastinating lengths to which we go.  I'm glad that the articles are proving helpful to you.  You may want to try checking in/bookending.  It's proved helpful to many of us.

Good luck!

Hi Destiny

I second scarlett's greeting and sentiment. Welcome!

And, yes, I am always amazed at the shift that happens for me when I avail myself of the checkin/bookend forums. For example, though it took me two days to get some things done just now, I very definitely made an effort with the thought in mind that I NEEDED to report back here. Very cool.
