    If we often choose the wrong alternate activities, we will fall. The weakest level of alternate activities are level 5 activities. Things like risky TV or movies, hanging with friends who lead you down the wrong path, or drinking.
    While these things are usually better than gambling, you will have a much higher chance to quit your habit if you choose level 1 and level 2 activities. Level 1 activities include Bible-study, prayer, reading Christian books, reading quitting addiction books, helping out at church, and telling a friend how Jesus is helping you. Also, try joining a church Bible study, sometimes they are great. These activities not only distract and help you through today, but they also strengthen you for tomorrow and all month.
    Level 2 activities are things like exercising plus prayer, exercising outside of you home, team sports, group activities, hanging with friends who tend to help you instead of leading you down the wrong path.
    Level 3 activities are learning a musical instrument, sports or non-computer games at home, hobbies at home.
    This article is not meant to be a complete list of alternative activities. The point is, if you focus on level 1 and 2 activities, they help your future. The more you focus on higher level activities, the better your chances are for freedom. Always push to improve your activity by a level or two. It is a secret to success.
    Lastly, treat your activities list as your work. You are working towards having a future of freedom and joy. The pay is 10 times the pay you will get at any other job. The rewards are huge. Believe, work, succeed.
