    Obsession with your own thoughts is Mental Masturbation.

    It's an addiction, and like all addictions one should seek professional help to overcome it.

    Good luck.

    Yes, you can stop your thoughts. Try to think during a sneeze.

    Absolutely ! 100% sure.

    More then once I Stood up to do something and Immediately Stopped Thinking what I Got up For.
    I've even stopped thinking what it was before I Stood up

    usually they all come back, it's just timing.

    sometimes within seconds, sometimes decades

    No. I had many sleepless night over things that transpired at work. I just could not let things go. I finally couldn't deal with the toxic environment anymore and walked out and retired at 59. I'm glad it finally over after 40 years. I sleep much better these days.

    Apparently, by asking me a question instead of responding, I'll assume you agree with me.

    Varies by person and by gender according to many studies. Women tend to not be able to shut it down while a guy can often sit in front of a tv and go blank. Might be why men suffer from ALZ more than women?

    i am one that can't turn it off. I started out as touring comic back in the late '80's and my act was 100% impromptu so I had to think fast. For me, the more uncomfortable i am, the more my mind races and puts images and ideas together, so standing in front of crowd under spotlight was enough to transform me into the comdic version of the Hulk. There were times when I walked off the stage and had no memory of what I even said the whold set, but collected my money and was told that I killed it.

    I just grew tired of throwing up an hour prior to the show and being fully drained afterwards to keep it as a career. Still, my mind races all day and often keeps me up at night. Just the way I am wired I guess.

    I did the same, but at 55, in the middle of a staff meeting, I just all of a sudden felt a wave go over me, I said, "you know what? Do whatever you want. I'm giving 2 weeks notice as of today."

    That was in 2004, I'm almost 73 now, never regretted it a minute. Had to do a bit of juggling with my finances, but it all worked out. Don't work all your life, just to drop dead.

    My thoughts just don't stop unless I'm asleep, and not sure they do then.

    But someday, they will stop = we're each assured of that. I pray my thoughts beyond that time still get through to my kids......

    Since Dreams are Thoughts, I'd say most of the Time Your Sleeping your Thinking about Something

    Absolutely. Choose what you think about. If you just let your thoughts run wild they will destroy you. When a bad thought runs through my mind I deliberately put it aside as soon as I realize it. Easy to think about arrowheads in a case like that. Redirect to something positive.

    You are still thinking thoughts.
