Have a few ideas of alternative activities to distract yourself:

Walking.
Hiking.
Reading.
Talking with a friend.
Tidying up your house.
Visiting an elderly or sick relative etc.

i can relate to your post, and your are right "on the ball".    Lust-Addictionsis when lust became far more than just "attraction" but rather a distraction from all the pent-up fears/worries/stress/embarrassment/grief/regret/shame/guilt/etc...     and as soon as people start the long journey of 'abstaining' from lust they desprately seek an alternative distraction.

From my experience:
If you smoke, you'll buy a carton instead of just a pack
If you overeat, you might as well go buy a larger size of pants
If you workout- you'llso more often (dopamine is also a powerfull drug)
If you endlessly read news-  you might find yourself catching up on Zimbabwe's politics (for example)
If you overdo whats-app -  You will most likely sign up to another hundred groups.


the faster YOU DO THE STEOWORK (and it IS a process of delf-discovery) the less you will have to run from. until one day you can sit calmly and enjoy the SERENITY of RECOVERY
