Procrastination

Patient

Q: Im 26 year old. ive always been suffering with the problem of not been able to concentrate on important tasks and making excuses for myself for not doing the work. recently i read about procrastination and it seems i have all the symptoms of it and im in a very dangerous stage of ruining my entire life. my health is in worst shape. my social life has become a nightmare. ive been addicted to alcohol and mild drugs aa grass and hash to escape any situation. on almost every front of life im suffering because of this. it isnt that i cannot work or dont want to work its just that j don't. god knows why. i cannot plan either. i keep thinking about the things which i NEED to do but sonehow i always end up not doing. whether its to call up parents or friends or go ho to a routine check up to doctor or to complete a task..even if i have to urinate i dont go to washroom intill its extremely urgent. my tendency to push things to last possible moment is damaging my entire life. i even lie most of the time, to others and ro myself too, just to avoid acting on a situation. this habit has made me onto a highly dependent parasite...
please help.
