    First I'd like to brag that today is my 30 days mile stone of nofap! If you asked me a month ago I would tell you I wouldn't be able to go that long. And this is your 5+ masturbations per day guy. The one who spent hours upon hours upon hours mastrubating.

    The problem I'm facing now is that I seam to fill void with alcohol. I feel way better now I have energy spikes every now and then so its not like i feel I have more energy all the time. But I a lot more time to do something productive and I am better off then I was a month ago, but I just don't know how to deal with this with out licker. I can sit watch TV and drink bottle of Jack all by my self in one sitting. I am afraid I'm heading towards dark side of alcoholism. Did anyone have same experience?

    It's common to replace one habit with another. The brain is looking for another dopamine fix. Personally, I think that alcohol leads to relapse.

    My hangover time used to be prime relapse time, so I am surprised that you have made it to 30 days with that amount of heavy drinking going on.

    A whole bottle of Jack in one sitting is far too much to be drinking, especially regularly. How often do you drink this much?

    Alcohol will dull your decision making and lower your resistance to temptation, etc. You are unlikely to achieve full reboot with a big alcohol problem - I'm amazed you've made 30 days to be honest.

    Looking to fill the void left behind by PMO? You need POSITIVE habits and hobbies, my friend. Do you go to the gym? Do you walk or cycle in the countryside? Do you read every day? Have you tried meditation or yoga/pilates? Would you like to learn a foreign language or learn to play a musical instrument? Do you already play a musical instrument but never practice it?

    Imagine if somebody you loved asked them how they should be spending their free time in order to better themselves and fulfill their potential. What would you advise them to do?

    You are both right. Sadly I replaced last night. I am so mad at my self now. I felt that finally after long time I achieved something just to relapse the very night. I drink every night and lately during the day, but whole bottle usually twice a week in one sitting.

    Sorry buddy, but you are drinking far too much. If you keep drinking this much it will have a serious negative effect on your health - maybe not immediately, but it will happen. In the short term it is effecting your ability to learn, your memory, your ability to interact with people etc. And it is probably costing you quite a lot too!

    This needs tackling, and probably now. Try to cut it down, speak to someone, doctor anyone.
