The last few times I acted out, I feel like I could've controlled myself, and would've controlled myself if I'd have some place to go and have a beer with some friendly people, or do some thing with someone.

Just last week I'd had a few very busy days at work and had to get my mind off work related issues, and couldn't think of anything to do or someplace to go that would distract me enough, and I succumbed.

This is probably very important and is possibly at the root of a lot of people's problems given our increasingly lonely society.
Maybe a wiser person here can answer this well.

Boredom and restlessness are major triggers.  More than many people realize, I think.

I have nothing to do today and nowhere to go. I'm controlling myself right now but if I can't find anything to do, I don't know... any ideas?

I do not know where you live.

But if you are in a city with a reasonably sized Jewish population, is there a Jewish community centre which has lectures and activities?

Is he a shul near you which as the same?

Is there a Jewish or community volunteering network near you?

There is a website called meetup  not a Jewish site, but it brings together people with like-minded interests.
If you could use that to meet other people for activities... not going clubbing or to bars but perhaps history based, or science based, or a walking group or reading group?
