I have the same problem, only at the graduate level.

Might be a slight ADD problem but not full-blown.

My advice:
Meditation, breathing exercises, krill oil, coq10, good nights sleep, eat a salad a day.

:lol: at "leopardcon"...sounds like a decepticon from Beast Wars...:lol:.

OP, as far as increasing your attention span, I'd suggest doing things that force you to pay attention to detail. For example, take up drawing, or painting. Also start reading a lot more, from traditional sources of written content--which is to say, read from books, newspapers, and magazines, and NOT from the computer, or IPAD, or your phone, where you can easily browse over some other content (which kinda defeats the purpose of the whole "focus" thing).

Reduce your usage of computers, and definitely stay away from all types of medication (professional prescribed and otherwise) that are geared toward combating ADHD. Those pills do more damage than good.

Seriously, stop watching porn. Creates a dopamine imbalance for anyone and everyone who watches it for long stretches of time consistently.

When your body becomes use to the huge dopamine spikes porn gives you, it drastically decreases your arousal in everything else other than porn in your life.

To concentrate your body consistently builds dopamine and that keeps you engaged, but like I said, with porn you become use to that high level of arousal it gives you, so the only thing that can actually engage you is porn.

This affects everyone who consistently views porn. Everyone.

Never been to a Leopardcon, but i thought conventions usually last like hours and even days? not short at all.

i stopped watching porn for the last 3/4 weeks... i masterbated once in that time (felt like crap the next day)...

but yeah I agree... porn is an addiction and it really does mess with your body/mind.

I'm in recovery mode right now (prolly need another few weeks/months for complete recovery) and tbh I feel normal now.. in a sense.

my goal is to try to reduce or eliminate porn, internet and caffeine from my life... those are kinda my addictions right now.
