Surprised at the lively discussion so soon. I would say, nobody has managed to suggest anything that is anywhere near as exciting as gambling, so, perhaps that's just how it is

Honestly the only things that may come close, that come to my mind, are illegal.

pretty much any activity that requires your time and keeps you off the computer
join a league of some sort; there's still the thrill of competition
get a gaming system with long and multiple levels
get a dog - they require attention
gardening
interact with people outside the pc
volunteer

The "rush" has never been the biggest factor in my gambling. I'd say video games comes closest for me, for accomplishing something, spending time engaged, and something to do.

One of the most thrilling things I have did was the Skelton Run at Olympic Park in Calgary. Head first on a sled down an olympic slide. It's no longer open to the public, after a death a few years ago.

You put a lot on the line getting up on stage. Maybe go do an open mike somewhere, do a comedy one if you can't sing.

As someone who stopped playing online slots last year (Out of principle not addiction issues) I have to say that I miss the fun and excitement of playing big time, and havnt found anything nearly as fun so far lol

Porn, reading (aside from porn), metal detecting, destroy-it-yourself, gardening or collecting things from say small auctions, boot sales etc.
I can vouch for four of those pastimes.
