I recently learned that self-destructive behaviors are a solution many people choose so they feel more in control in their life.
Here's a list of things you can do that can give you the same feeling but they aren't self-destructive.
Have a particular time when you have tea or hot cocoa.
Plan something in your life. It can be your meals, your schedule, the progress of a goal, anything will do.
Learn a new skill that empowers you. Coding, Chinese medicine, workouts, NLP; whatever you choose, make sure it makes you feel powerful in a way or another.
Write a book/story. You control everything there.
Dress in a way that delights you.
Decorate your room/house/environment
Change your hairstyle
Have a particular routine for something, anything
