The fact that you day dream does not automatically imply ADD. There are a number of symptoms that must occur together before we can make the diagnosis, and even then it is not always (often) obvious. The diagnosis is made using a statistical manual called the DSM-IV, and for you to qulaify for the condition you must satisfy 6 of 9 criteria for more than 6 months in different (home and school/work) environments.

There are many free online tests available that will give you some idea of your probable risk profile.
