    Everything on your list except alcohol, drugs, and kids. Oh and gaming. The only video game I currently play regularly is Call of Duty Black Ops (one) on the Wii.

    My own wandering mind is a pretty big distraction. I'd say Reddit as well, but Reddit gained me my largest client, so it's profitable. I'd say BHW too, but @hasa1015 pays me $10 per 100 words I post here.

    Anything more would be too much of a distraction haha. I grind through a couple hours of games when I get bored, which is once every quarter or so.

    I know the feeling, I usually check Steam for cool titles that aren't huge like other games, then I stumbled on RUST, it's like a high graphic version minecraft in an open world and fps.. Ugh, don't start!

    Nothing from the list.
    My Distraction : Education (College).
    I can't (don't want to ) quit. I need a backup plan (a regular job) if IM fails.
