    There's no such a thing about "unlearn" to day-dream, it's something that you need to control because you can lost in it. I'm taking medication for it actually (Bach Flowers) and it's really helping me because there's now way I could do it by my own.
    I decide to ask for help when I started no knowing what the hell was doing here in real life, I mean, I have periods, or moments where I don't what the hell did while I was daydreaming so that thing started to freak me out.
    I still day dreaming of course, I can't change that but I have a control right now.

    Because there's a moment when you realized your life is happening only in your mind, and when you look at your real life, there's nothing there.
    We need to spend the same time in both sides.

    And what kind of meditation? I believe you have different types of meditation, when I try to meditate I breath in and out and concentrate on my breathing.
    I just lie still and try to focus on physical sensations. I don't always focus just on breathing, sometimes it's the feeling of my feet on the floor or the air around my fingers, or something. I typically end up sensing a lot more things and sometimes I see images, like geometric patterns and moving lights, which is apparently common. You might experience Hypnagogia, which is fairly common when I try to meditate and actually happened the first time I tried.

    You might be interested in reading this article on what constitutes progress in meditation. What you may be looking for, in addition to a greater ability to daydream, is an increased sense of mindfulness. It is possible drugs like marijuana could get you there, but you may be able to find ways of your own as well. Not to pass judgment -- just as a personal suggestion

    That's exactly what I was saying. He wasn't asking for methods to help him unlearn daydreaming: he was wondering if it was possible to have already done so, and I thought to suggest ways to start daydreaming more again. I offered meditation as a potential solution, because it sure as hell makes me daydream more. It's true that this wasn't explicit in his question, so I apologize for my post's lack of clarity.

    The point is I want to day dream more. I feel I spend too much time in the real world. Yes I'm aware that I must spend time in reality and it's not that I will day dream all the time, but a bit more would be nice. That's why I look for ways to increase my time to day dream.

    Thanks for the article! I'll defenitly look out for those signs. Also, one time when I was in bed, after I had done my breathing-meditation, I noticed that my heartbeat was really slow and when I wasn't breathing, my body wouldn't ask for oxygen and I could go for 30 seconds without feeling the need to breath. (I didn't inhale so my lungs were without oxygen for as far I could feel) Is this usual? Or might this also be a sign?

    You're not giving yourself anything stimulating enough. Read a stephen king novel. Draw a random picture. Paint it. Then throw it away. And draw another one from scratch.

    Or maybe you are being stimulated too much and the things around you are over stimulating. This is now defining the limits of your creativity and making you feel blunt/uncreative and less likely to be motivated toward dreaming like you used to. In which case, take a completely different route and make the outside world less stimulating. Wake up at 5:30 am in the morning. Just sit, and stare at things. Observe and listen to the silence. Something can always creep into my mind when I get myself in this position for at least a half hour.
