I am honestly trying to stop a compulsion. I’ve been working on it and sometimes I’m doing great and I can stop myself from compulsively carrying out a specific action. Other times I cave and I do what I know I shouldn’t, what I promised I shouldn’t, what I’ve been working on trying to stop.
Things have been altered to help me not do this, things have been put in place to help me not do what i do. I know I have to stop, but for some reason I can’t seem to.
I still find myself in the middle of my kid sisters room going through drawers and closets and everything else. I keep turning her room over. I thought I was doing so well. But I just started again. She’s been cool with me about it.
But the thing is, I’m really mad at myself for this… I did promise. I’m trying to figure if this is just habit, paranoia, compulsive behavior,… maybe the motivation doesn’t matter… I have to stop this. I am working on it… but it’s not going well right now.
How do others stop their compulsive behavior? Looking for ideas…
