Procrastination & Binge Drinking.

by Anonymous

I planned to work on projects over the weekend but this seemed to take second place to a desire to drink and do addictive behaviors.

It seems avoidance motivated. But I thought I really wanted to do the project, and I would enjoy it if I started.

Why am I doing this?


This is the disconnect between your mind and body – your brain tells you that you can do the projects, however, the projects stress you out.

Procrastination causes stress and once you relieve stress by taking a drink, the familiar pattern kicks in.

There are stresses in everyday living, however once you’ve learned to take the edge off with drink, food, gambling, video games or whatever….. you’ll do that first, instead of confronting the issue, zone out for awhile until you ‘crash’ -- and then swear that you’ll never do it again – but you do. That’s the ‘twisted thinking’ that goes on with all addictive behaviors.

You must stop procrastinating and learn more appropriate ways of dealing with stress.

I hope this is helpful.
