If you’re getting sober just for the sake of getting sober, you could very likely fall into another addiction – like sports gambling.

While gambling, for example, may be less intense than the alcohol or drug addiction, the impulsive behaviors that many addicts possess, and the need to fulfill a void created by the stoppage of substance abuse, these replacement interests can spiral out of control quickly.

In this video, Nate & Tommy talk about replacement or backup addictions, and how to find healthier and more productive activities to maintain your sobriety.
