You've done the first step which is removing the thing that's been satisfying your addiction up to this point. But you're not done. The next step is properly acknowledging and dealing with the underlying addiction feeling itself, so that you don't simply fill that addictive need with something else that might be negative.
Anyone struggling with addiction would do well to heed this advice. It's spot on.
