When I first began my trip out of addiction I didn't know what to do with myself. All the time I would spend on it was now spent thinking about it, nervous movements and just being anxious all the time because something was missing. I soon began realizing that I would need to fill that space with other things, things I enjoyed that I would be able to do without thinking of my bad habits. I started to fill those gaps with learning to prepare better meals (in fact I taught myself how to make some pretty amazing dishes, still do, even). I'm also one of those types of people who love to research; I'll research for fun. I began researching and enrolled in college as well in order to pass my time. I've also taken more interest in video games, which are extremely helpful when I'm in a tight spot because it allows me to focus on another reality. Has anyone else ever moved on with these types of things?
