Video Games - I use them as my escape. I almost tear up at all of the hours I have wasted playing games, all the different skills I could have be practicing.
Oh fuck. I remember the times where I would spend the whole weekend on my PS2, Wii, and PC. Spending hours upon hours of video games. It was also my escape, and I couldn't get back the time I lost back then. Now, I can't spend more than an hour on a game, so you ain't alone here. I can only spend it on my online business now.

Mental masturbation/analysis paralysis - I never just do it. I always waste so much time researching the "best" way to do something, way above and beyond what I really need
Yup, you aren't alone here, either. Chris from GLL said it best:

"Perfectionism rewards you early in life but leads to underachievement later in life."

Taking action and allowing yourself to such was the biggest antidote to this problem of mine.

My main vice is probably taking on overly ambitious projects, getting half-decent at them, then quitting halfway through. I'm the epitome of 'Jack of all trades, Master of none'. The way I've combated this problem is I've started writing out my goals onto index cards and putting them onto a corkboard above my desk. I then make bi-weekly index cards that have all of my to-do's for accomplishing a particular task within an overall goal (i.e. If I'm learning blues on the piano, I'll write "play C-major blues pentatonic scale perfectly 10x in a row") and I'll put down a checkbox for each day of the week to create a sense of urgency for myself as I'm checking a box after each day (i.e. Mon[ ], Tu[ ], Wed[ ]). This system has served me pretty well so far.

Porn. My sex drive is way too high, I have to get my nut in. I try to limit it to no more than once a week though, or else it interferes with my motivation to go out and talk to real chicks.

I use certain drugs and caffeine for school. The funny thing is I'm tapering off this week because I want to give my body a much needed break.

It's kind of hard to stop using them because I'm still young and I want to push myself as hard as possible. It's my opinion that hard work is 90% of the key to anything, any kind of supplements will push you 1% further.

I do want to go cold turkey for a couple weeks in the future.
