even if I perform the techniques, sometimes it takes hours, maybe even the whole day before I stop MD-ing. the end result is that it "snaps" for an unexplainable reason. i just suddenly stop MD-ing, i don't know why. what's even more mysterious is that if i "give up" everything suddenly goes better. if i say "I MD too much" or "it's hopeless" everything becomes better..
I think it's because when you say to yourself for ex. "I do it too much" you acknowledge the maladaptive daydreams as a problem which is the first step in journey to get better. Desperation with repressing is something that encourages maladaptive daydreaming in my experience.
