Default Junk Food And Computer Games

I've developed a problem around junk food and computer games. I use them to distract myself from unpleasant thoughts. But I'm ruining my life in the process: I've lost all motivation for living.

If I decide to straighten up and do the right thing, I soon become very depressed and anxious. But if continue trying to distract myself, then I don't get done the things I want to do. I'm wasting my life.

The less I deal with my problems, the worse they become, and the harder it is to dig myself out from this hole. This just makes me want to distract myself even MORE.

Any suggestions?

Pat

i struggle with this on occasion too, like recently. What gets me on track is imagining who is depending on me and where I want to be in life. I know playing video games and junk food isnt going to get me to any of my goals, so I know to reduce it or eliminate it out of my days.

I feel the exact same way! I have no motivation to look for a job, clean the house, do my volunteer work, check my emails, or even continue working on getting back on SSI even though I have a ton of support. Truth be told, I can't even get myself to take a shower. I think it's depression and anxiety like with you. All I want to do is talk to my online friends all day or smoke cigarettes. The only reason I got up early this morning that I wanted to smoke a cigarette.

Coffee seems to be helping, as well as working alone, which helps me keep my mind clear of voices and be more productive. At least I hope so.
