    Hey guys, I’m new here and hoping to change my life for the better

    Anyway, when it comes to the addiction, how many of you or have you replaced P addiction with another hobby? For years I’ve had issues with this addiction and only recently partaking in a “quarter life” crisis where I’m about to continue my focus on archery and possible bow hunting. I sort to engage this hobby as a replacement and to get myself involved within the community and outside rediscovering myself.

    So my simple question is...

    What hobbies do you have or have taken up as a “replacement” for P addiction?

  3. For me, it was getting back onto the train of personal development: exercise, studying, etc.

    Great hobbies and I’m glad it’s helping you. It’s time us men return to true manhood and participate in things that reclaim our identity.

    I have pursued my main hobby of martial arts much further but that's not always practical as a distraction.

    I find yoga as a supplementary exercise very useful for creating a distraction. It's easily accessible at home at any time and as well as being good for the body if find it very good for the mind.

    Totally agree. Art of Manliness is a great resource for all things manly. I highly recommend it.

    Learning the Guitar, and of all the genre's to become engrossed in... Country music... I love Chicago Blues, but playing (well learning) I love Country... it's odd

    hobbies help a lot to spend time productively. for me the problem isn't the amount of hobbies, it's the amount of time ( i would fit in my PMO session in the day) . i'd be jerking off regardless of the amount of hobbies. although now my days don't revolve around porn, not that it's gone completely but i'm working on getting absolutely rid of it. Coming on the nofap forums helps a LOT because it prevents me going astray


    the best part about a hobby is the amount of content you have when you're discussing stuff with friends. it forms a part of your character

    some hobbies i developed were learning french, listening to good music, working out, swimming ( i do it less now) and learning tango ( i do this one less but planning to seriously commit to it in the summer) and lastly learning history

    I've started to get back into reading. As a kid, reading was my favorite thing to do. I slowly lost that hobby as I became more addicted to porn and the internet in general.

    Writing was also a big hobby for me. Growing up, I wanted to be an author. I would write in my free time and collaborate with different writers on a few writing sites. It was a lot of fun, but I stopped doing it due to chronic writer's block. I'm hoping I can be able to write again once my brain starts to rewire.

    Watching movies has always been a HUGE hobby of mine. I love film and even went to school for it (though I sadly never graduated). Since starting NoFap, my love of movies has increased. Instead of watching porn on the weekends, I'll now watch a few new movies or maybe binge a documentary series. I like to study and learn all I can from what I watch. It's also a hobby my significant other shares with me.

    The gym is always a winner. Also I was doing MMA my first year of no porn but didn’t have the money to continue beyond that
