    I’ll get right to the problem I face. I have just over 18 months clean from opiate addiction. Over this time have have substitued other behaviors as addictive behavior. For example I went crazy exercising and dieting and lost 40 lbs. Then went to something else always looking for that high I used to get. Lately I have been getting involved in sexual behavior that is nothing less than reckless and just plain dumb. I love the thrill and the feeling I’m getting from doing this. For example I started having an affair with a much younger women whom is also a exotic dancer. Aside from the sex being terrific I feel like a new man acting like this. When I am not doing something crazy or trying to substitute another addiction I feel depressed and dont enjoy life. Yet when I am doing this crazy stuff it makes me feel like I did when I was using.
    I know this behavior is bad for me but I need help and advice from other addicts.

    Thanks
