I learned during and after my moms and dads divorce to get loss in science fiction books during the worst of it I was reading about three books a day or 600 pages or so. I still read today. Speaking of which I have a book all ready.

My escape is through writing.

Another way I relieve stress is by rocking out with my favorite music. Not long ago I used real player 10 to rip all my CD's to MP3's. I use Winamp for playing them, I like it best of all the players. I select the albums I want to hear, and select random and repeat play. I got my own radio station! rock on!

I also like to play guitar, I'm not very good at it...but I can learn songs from TAB if I practice them for long enough

I sail or walk the beach alone. Also, I tend to get into a wild cleaning mode form time to time. Gotta have that organization and structure!

I work out at the Gym. I mountainbike and inlines skate in the summer and teach inline skating. In the winter I snoboard. The gym is for self image and meets my need for pain for which I have not lost the attraction. But is safe now this way. I like the othe things because there is an element of risk to them at all times. This replaces dangerous situations in which I found myself for most of my life before dealing with SA. In reflection I guess I suppress by replacment.

Books are my first love, house of my family was always full of them.

Now I have time to read books only on my vacation. Then I read really fast. Few hundred pages per day.

Beside this I developed one strange hobby. I systematically collect and put in my brain a lot of information.
From books (historical, geographical, encyclopaedias ...), newspapers, internet, news channels, whatever source I can find...
I specially prefer to store economical facts (on business channels I can found ocean of information \:\) ).
There is no any practical use of this hobby but I like to build some kind of a database in my mind and on that way I am totally out of mine problems.
