How to learn to study, if I never did it my entire life?

In 5th grade I basically stopped doing homework, slept during classes. Parents didn't care, me neither, I was busy playing computer games till 3am.

Now I'm 27, dropped out of college, worked min wage jobs last few years. So the question is, how do I learn to study now, being an adult man? I want to get a good job (I've always wanted a job in IT, not because of muh money), gain new skills.

    you already know the answer, don't you? why haven't you started yet? you're merely scared to face the reality, which is that you will not turn your life around, and that it is already over.

        Start small, break down the general ideas of the info into smaller notes. This is a start

    you see, the truth is, you can't; you've developed innumerous unhealthy habits, your IQ is most likely average, and your neuroplasticity has evaporated due to your age.

    perhaps it's better to ask about coping methods?

      thats just a cope. most teens are like OP who just procrastinate all day long and struggle to study

      its just about putting in the work while still maintaining a life balance of eating good food and sleep. thats all

                your subjective experience does not change the well-known fact, and procrastination has nothing to do with neuroplasticity.

                im from germany so our academics is probably more difficult on average. i also dont see why you need to get personal? i dont quite see the reasoning so if ur not gonna tell me i wont rly bother with that.
                i never use discord, i have maybe used it like 2 times when i had to some teamwork shit and they wanted to do it there. and im probably a bit shy in talking to some random strangers on the internet bc im just usually dont do it im not used to discord.

                well idc what some random 19 yo on the internet thinks about me, i gave this thread my experience and thats all, i would even say im highly intelligent and thats actually one reason i failed uni on first try bc srsly how can u not go mad doing these repetitive task all the time? i dont consider memorizing vocabulary to be a trait of intelligent people in fact most academics are very average. i never thought of myself as stupid not when i dropped out not when graduated. i actually just think the system sucks and it doesnt correlate at all. some geeky nerd girls in my uni always had best marks, idgasf i didnt consider them smarter than me at any point

                and see this is what i mean
                many people are literally like this poster and i felt the same at his age

                At least in my case, I stopped studying purely because I lost the motivation to. It bored late teens/early 20s me and I wanted to spent my time on other things, and I thought why should I finish a degree? So I can work some bullshit office job that makes me miserable and earn more money than I need because I don't want a wife and kids anyway?
                So I also dropped out and just worked dead-end jobs through my 20s, had a lot of fun and worked on a lot of personal projects, but one day I woke up and realised I didn't want to do this shit forever, so I went to trade school and learned an actual employable skill. That was all there was to it, gitting gud started to become rewarding and whenever I was tempted to just quit I thought about working those nonsense jobs for a decade and how I didn't want to go back to that.
                Get checked for ADHD, but you could've just been undisciplined and lost. What kind of work do you want to do in IT? Like tech support, sysadmin, programming? A lot of stuff is very practical and you can get hands-on experience in a support-type role and do certifications. Where do you want to start? You have to have a goal in mind and commit to it else you'll lose motivation and fuck up like before. Get any relevant experience you can, talk to people in the field and set tangible subgoals that you can work towards.

                i also dropped out once and restarted. and i only pulled thru bc i felt the need to do it to save face and get a 'real job'
                studying always sucked
