    When I try start a streak of nofap things which I would usually find entertaining just aren't such as watching TV shows playing games working out ect i just get so bored now from watching too much porn any ideas on how to find things more fun? As I just end up going on my phone and scrolling which can sometimes lead to relapsing

    Maybe choose what you're going to watch before you sit down to chill.
    Pick a specific movie or a book, or schedule your evenings rather than just see what turns up.
    See how it goes?

    I just seem to get really bored of whatever it is really maybe because it's not giving a big hit of dopamine like porn does but I ll try the plan

    Try occupying your time with something that distracts you from any triggers. Whether it be a hobby, video game, Netflix, whatever. Anything is better than leading yourself down a path to relapse like just web surfing.

    Also have a plan in place for wen you do stumble upon triggers and how to redirect yourself. I.e. the nofap forums.

    Best of luck

    Good man.
    Choose a good movie, get some goodies & saddle in with an intention to enjoy it.
    Plan the next few nights and see how you get on.
    You'll be cool.

    You might consider expanding your goals and what you want to achieve in life. Boredom like this can be easily replaced by challenging yourself.

    In a way maybe it's okay if the alternative to porn a bit boring. Think of it as you've got an exam and you have two option:
    study or play with friends.
    Not studying is boring but we still do it cause we have to get good grades.

    Or like you to make a presentation and have two options as:
    rehearse for the presentation/do research or watch TV

    now rehearsing can be boring, but it's important.

    Similarly I think the alternative to porn can be boring and it's okay. Maybe it's okay to be bored, like taking medicines is boring.

    Not everything interesting is good for life. Like driving at super high speed on a busy lane with one hand holding a bottle of beer while the other hand operating the mobile.

    Your brain is probably so used to dopamine hits that anything else just seems boring. Or it wants you to think it is boring so you will go back to more porn. I would just try a reboot and then I bet things will become exciting again. But just as everyone is different, it can take more or less time for everything.
