Hey people, I'm addicted to thinking. It's hurting me alot and I can't help it. I'm 25 and male. The problem is that I can't sit at my desk for maybe 10 minutes just concentrating on the paper I'm reading and not thinking about some real or unreal event from the past.

Many times I replay the old memories. I ruminate them and it's terrible. Whenever I go to bed I have to think about these memories including sexual ones to sleep. I talk with myself without moving my lips constantly. I want to get rid of this addiction. Please help me or tell me if you need more information.

Can I take some medicine? Do physical methods like neurofeedback help?

Please help

There is nothing you can do to stop your thoughts from happening. Any drug you take or therapy you do will simply change the contents of your thoughts for a while.

Stop trying to stop your thoughts.. see what happens.
