It's a toss up.

It's pretty evenly split between Warhammer 40k and Cocaine.

40k probably hit the pocket harder than the cocaine.

Coffee and browsing the internet aimlessly. Coffee just makes me anxious, but I love the taste. The internet just wastes my time.

Smoking. Started around 12 and after close to 25 years of it I finally quit. It has been years now since I have had one but it still has an impact. Anytime stress hit I smoked a cigarette. Anytime I needed to think about a problem at work I would smoke a cigarette and talk it out to myself. Now I removed the thing I associated with stress relief as well as my "thinking cap". So I gained weight because the easy replacement was food. And I mean a lot of weight, at 6 feet tall I was up to 250 almost. Took me awhile to get back to normal weight and still working on keeping myself at it (I still fluctuate up and down between 170 and 180). Then you add in the health impact it took over the years, meaning getting back to walking or anything resembling working out was a chore. When I was smoking I would get winded walking a mile. And it took time to overcome that and get myself back in some semblance of shape. I still don't have it all solved (still eat more than I should during stressful times, but I am more likely to make it something like a handful of peanuts instead of a fucking Twinkie) but it is getting better.

Even though it's been years since your last smoke, you might want to read "Easy Way to Stop Smoking" by Alan Carr. It deals with ways to avoid replacements, might make it easier for you.

Reading news. It's depressing.

Alcohol. Like my grandfather before me, I got into big trouble with it. Been to rehab three times, tried AA but it didn't work (98% relapse rate lol), tried meds but nothing really worked.

I'm now using a new strategy where I drink just enough to not suffer, but suffer just enough to not be drunk all the time. Previously I couldn't go more than a few hours without a drink, now I can go days between. That's progress.

Porn. I've been a heavy addict for pretty much all of my teenage years and it has really affected me negatively. I actually developed porn induced erectile dysfunction. I still relapse but this last half year has been fairly successful as my streaks are getting longer and longer, I'm 17 days porn free right now (not much I know...). Thankfully this addiction can be reversed if I abstain but I will always regret that I wasted what could have been some of the best years of my life sexually. But I'm glad I quit before VR porn became a mainstream thing. That is going to fuck up a whole generation of young people.

Following along with societies rules. For clarification I am for helping others and i won't do things that make life harder for others... but so much of what society dictates is just useless and unnecessary.

Edit: Also for clarification. I won't do things that make life harder for people for no good reason. If I make something hard for someone in order to teach them something that will help them grow as a person... I am perfectly willing.
