Personally, I'd probly become an alcoholic. More than half my family is, while I run. I dont handle stress well.

I lost my ability to run seven years ago at the age of 23 and I barely survived the ordeal. From the ages of 14-23, running was my highest priority in life, the single activity that I structured the rest of my life around. When I lost it in 2006, I camebwas an agitated, suicidal hermit for six months. That phase ended with me getting locked up in an insane asylum for 14 days when my mom called the state mental health nazis on me after I performed some mock-suicidal theatrics with a .45 mag. After I got out, I turned to weed and went on a hardcore marijuana-fueled internet trolling rampage, and that went on for another year. You guys can't even fathom how hard I trolled letsrun that year. I don't think I shaved or cut my hair once the whole time. Anyway, I eventually came out of my funk, got a job and moved on with life, and I'm actually much better off overall now that my life doesn't revolve around running anymore. I know it seems all-important and irreplaceable when it's occupied a central position in your life since you were in high school, but for most people, once you're past HS/college, the grass really is greener on the other side IMO.

Some of the text got lost here. That should read, "when I lost (running) in 2006, I came completely unglued. I moved back in with my parents and was an agitated, suicidal hermit for six months."

I've been unable to run for forty years. To be honest, I deal with stress damned badly.

I don't run "to relieve stress". I run because I love it. Stress release is a side effect of running. If I couldn't run I'd get serious about one of my other interests.

I'd probably get serious about writing. Yes, I write professionally but I don't consider it a passion at this point.
