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:
- Admit that one cannot control one’s addiction or compulsion;
- Recognise a higher power that can give strength…..really?
- Exame past errors with the help of a sponsor (experienced member)…………..help, who’ll sponsor me?
- Make amends for these errors…..sorry Joe for leaning on the door that crashed into you and broke your little nose
- 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
- Helping others who suffer from the same addictions or compulsions……………….Is there anyone out there?
