Before you get mad, the title is relevant. Although perhaps slightly misleading...

My call to discussion today is around attention.

What ways can people suggest for weening oneself off the social drug that is attention? I find myself doing a lot of stupid shit and am beginning to wonder if its just for attention. Having become aware of it I'd like to make a change, so what suggestions have you got folks?

Oh, and its probably best if I mention that I'm in college. UK College that is. Sixth Form.

Thanks, look forward to some sound advise.

Now that you have gotten me thinking about this I may have the same sort of problem so if anyone one has any answers to this I will grateful as well.

Well, concerning me being so sarcastic and pissing people off and having no social contact. I suddenly stopped to do shit, i was really like in crowd, silent, right, tho no hypocrisy, i was just self controled, i was very aware, before i did or told someting i had thought a lot, like the possibilites and consequences(mainly).

Then the people, even girls i used to piss really off came to me and say hi, and we could chat. Then i was too over-robotic, no humour pretty serious, because with that i stopped gaming and never met gamers again. Now i went back to some gaming which pushed me back a bit, but i feel better, not pissing people off, being more aware and i will carry on. Thats mine story.

So i thought to myself - get your attraction and attention for your achievements, not pissing people of. Athene is my huge motivation with his work done - like charity, TTTT. he makes me be productive and aware.

"Very interesting discussion. Something I think about a lot.  I can definitely identify with Fionn's fear of failure. I experience this in lots of things I do, from procratinating to do a fleeting sketch because of fear it might turn out…"

What's your character flaw? What do you intend to do about it?

Everybody has one, or sometimes more than one. Mine is a fear of failure. Atychiphobia. This leads into playing it safe, not taking huge risks, with work, education, friends,…See More
