A Fellow Leaner Cries For Help… We Hear You!

Dear Leaners United, I need help.

I have become addicted to leaning.  I lean on walls, chairs, bannisters, tables, doors (which occasionally fall open resulting in my injuring myself and others), and most recently, people.  I have discovered that there are many “out there” who dislike being leaned upon….though a small minority seem to enjoy the experience….generally older men.

Given my addiciton and experiences, I was wondering whether I could lean on you to add two areas to your site for people like me and like them (them that don’t like leaners). “Leaners anonymous, and how to manage/cure your addiction” AND “Dealing with “leaner-hate” – how to cope in a world that wont let you lean.
I’ve trawled the web in a frantic search for solutions, and thus far, this is the best advice I’ve found for dealing with my addiction:

To overcome or manage your leaning addiction, you must follow these steps:

  1. Admit that one cannot control one’s addiction or compulsion;
  2. Recognise a higher power that can give strength…..really?
  3. Exame past errors with the help of a sponsor (experienced member)…………..help, who’ll sponsor me?
  4. Make amends for these errors…..sorry Joe for leaning on the door that crashed into you and broke your little nose
  5. Learn to live a new life with a new code of behavior……….I will check my environment and request permission where necessary before leaning on someone/something in future
  6. Helping others who suffer from the same addictions or compulsions……………….Is there anyone out there?

Yours helplessly,
