Basically I need a new hobby to keep my mind occupied so I am not stressing over girl problems or work problems. Some of my friends recommended that I start smoking weed because that takes your mind off things but I'm not the type to smoke weed.
Hence I need a new hobby that requires 100% concentration where your mind has to be completely focused at all times. Because a focused mind does not wander and think about what's not in the immediate moment. I was thinking maybe something competitive because you have to be in top performing state of mind or something extreme because error can involve injury.

I snowboard to relieve stress. The more angery/stressed I am, the more tricks I acutally get because I'm focusing hard-to land the tricks and to not think about whatever is concerning me at the time.
100% concentration is needed...you could run into people, or trees. You could miss a jump or a rail and end up boarding into it. People have died snowboarding...so I think it fits the state of mind you're lookin for. And well, it's an extreme sport and error does cause injury.
The only time you'd get to not focus would be on the chairlift, but man now days you have to hold on, chairlifts aren't all that safe. If it stops at all of a sudden, you could fall, and well that wouldn't be good. You have to stay focused and 'on guard' for freak accidents like that.
Playing instruments is a good way to relieve stress too. My main instrument is the piano, and it takes 100% concentration to play a song right, otherwise you're B.S-ing it, and then you don't learn anything or play the song nicely.
I'm glad you aren't the type to smoke weed. It really accomplishes nothing. They should find a more productive way to manage stress.
Good luck =]0
