    Ill often catch myself in a intense conversation talking about anything, but I want to know if its normal or if its wrong and i shouldn't be doing it, but what do you guys think?

    I talk to myself all the time. Lots of people do. Nothing wrong with it. People catch me all the time. They ask "who are you talking to"? I say "myself".

    I don't think it's very strange to have conversations with yourself. I have often found that speaking about problems/issues out loud can even help with coming up with a solution.

    Depends. I often talk to myself when working on a challenging problem, or practicing a speech/interview. I had a roommate who would converse with himself, and everyone found it to be completely strange

    I think it is very healthy. It’s a large part of why people succeed, and others don’t. Affirmations work, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. If you have a positive, focused mind, you will always be reminding yourself of what’s important. What to do, and what not to do. When I started nofap seriously I had a conversation with myself in the mirror. “You know what to do, but you still won’t do it. You have to do it.” And from that point I’ve been doing it. People who fail don’t check themselves, and thus they keep the problematic behavior going.

    Talking to yourself as a problem. There are various points of view when it comes to this particular topic. I personally believe there are two sides to it, when you do it as an exclusive source of interaction or when you use it as a complement for other activities. Loneliness is a very common emotional state wich could be enhaced if the correct pathways are not build within your daily approach to life. To be more clear, I believe it is okay when you use it for a particular reason and with a specific result at hand, but if it is just erratic type of speech just for the sake of it, then it would be something to consider stop doing.

    I do it all the time. I started to slap my face everytime I do it and since then I've done it a bit less.

    Ever consider that slapping yourself in the face might actually be a bigger problem than talking to yourself?

    Not really. I actually managed to suppress many bad habits through physical pain.

    That is actually not that bad of an idea.

    Just don't ass dial someone while you're having a conversation with yourself. It tends to confuse them a bit.
