I just wanted to know do you ever think you can ever stop maladaptive daydreaming? I have been a compulsive daydreamer for over 5 years now and haven’t managed to stop.
Everytime you start daydreaming, catch yourself and scold yourself – tell yourself its silly and ridiculous., Keep doing that again and again. It works
Hi Mark, I’m still working on finding this out. But here are 3 Maladaptive daydreaming treatments that EX MDer’s said helped them – https://maladaptivedaydreamingisreal.com/yes-you-can-cure-maladaptive-daydreaming/treatments-for-maladaptive-daydreaming/
The only times I have managed to proplerly stop maladaptive daydreaming for days at a time, was to see my doctor and talk about the issues that are affecting me head on. Am on a waiting list to see a therapist at the moment and am thinking and hoping that once my issues have been sorted out I will no longer have a need to daydream. There does not seem to be an easy fix for this.
