lol what is this a support group...

Hi. My name is josh... and I'm a procrastinator...


...no

Who cares if you procrastinate, as long as it gets done right? If you don't like the last minute stress then tough, maybe you should just not procrastinate then.

Procrastination and easily distracted are also two very different things.

if you know you'll do nothing but check other stuff, stop working, go play some games or whatver, spend time not working then try to work again, if it doesnt work repeat the process. you might fail what you wanted to do i.e. study for exam or do work. whatever. You might get it trouble for it, just tell yourself, next time I won't distract myself.
Now the same thing might happen next time you do this, just repeat the steps above and one day you will learn perhaps.

Oddly appropriate: http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-j

With regards to school:

Discover THE ZONE(tm). Once you get in THE ZONE(tm), do whatever it takes to stay in THE ZONE(tm). Constantly remind yourself about how busy you are. Complain to your friends (in moderation) about how hard your homework is, or how all of your professors are conspiring together to schedule all of their exams/projects for the same week. Though complaining is annoying to others, it is actually a great way to maintain a sense of urgency, which is critical to staying in THE ZONE(tm).

Staying in THE ZONE(tm) for longer than 4 weeks may be a sign of a rare but serious condition. Consult your video games immediately.

Once you have successfully and safely exited THE ZONE(tm), reward yourself with plenty of downtime and relaxation.

Or in other words:
There's nothing wrong with procrastination as long as you know when it's time to roll your sleeves up and get shit done. By definition, a procrastinator doesn't skip work - they just get it done at the last possible moment. "Treating" procrastination means making sure that "the last possible moment" is BEFORE the due date.

A fear of failure and a desire to succeed can cure procrastination. I wasn't really cured of it until I put off a project and wound up making a poor grade on it because I did it all last minute.
