I’ve asked this question a few times before but am asking again to see if anyone or any of the new members give any novel suggestions…
What do people, especially those who aren’t working, do all day to overcome boredom?
I spend my day playing on the computer but there is only so much of this that I can do before getting bored of it.
My alcohol drinking has gone up a little bit because of boredom. I get especially bored in the evening when everyone is settling down and not wanting to do anything and I tend to have a couple of beers or whiskies to pass the time and soothe my anxiety.
A significant point I should mention is I can’t do anything outside of the house by myself. My parents are obviously/understandably not able to take me out all of the time, they have their own lives, so I need things that I can do at home.
In an ideal world I’d take myself out for a drive for several hours a day but of course that is not a possibility. Plus it would be expensive. Actually, in a really ideal world, I’d have a job!!
