Im trying to release this addiction by meditating, doing yoga, going to EMDR therapy, and writing. Also I stoped listening to music that makes me daydream a lot. What did you do in order to reduce it and not let this to control your life?
Stopped reading fictions because they lead to elaborate plots, learning to accept things that are not nice so that I don't try to escape them using MD, meditation, I try to stop an MD session at the start (of course I often fail) as that is the easiest time to stop it. When I have stuff inside me bottled up, it replays in my head again and again in form of MD. I have just joined another online community that will probably help me get that off my chest, you know I don't really have any friends and some stuff you can't share to your family. I will tell you guys how that works out. Another thing I do is I try to make my day more structured because it helps me stay in present. Finally I have simply accepted a lot contents of my MD and life in general and so the plots of alternate 'better' world and people decrease.I keep away from doing long MD sessions and short ones are ok if it happens. I will write more as I recall. And no MD has NOT stopped for me, but it is less than it used to.
