More learning is ideal. But since Torah can be "T'chilaso mar v'sofo masok" - bitter at first and then very sweet, there is a chance that you might find that you need something else at this point. (Getting through the bitter stage is of-course one of our main jobs in this world, but right now might not be the best time for that.) Often all you need to do is to choose the right subject, but sometimes that doesn't solve the problem. So, if not more learning (or in addition to more learning) at least make sure to find something productive and fulfilling. But don't forget: Boredom is the worst!
Hatzlochoh Rabah! And CHAZAK VEEMATZ!!!

Postal, getting rid of the TV is the best thing you could have ever done. See even this article about TV in Israel.

Even leaving Yiddishkeit aside, studies have consistently shown that people who watch less TV are happier and more fulfilled people. And for people who struggle with these issues, TV is the biggest threat to maintaining sobriety. So Kudos on this great step forward!

Now you can start to fill your life with meaningful things like Torah, family, work and being able to enjoy the beautiful world Hashem made without the constant "background noise" and "static" of the digital, goyish, filthy, empty world flooding your brain.

For ideas on what to do with your time, see this page of the kosher Isle.

Perhaps it is evidence of success in your endeavors?  You dreamed one thing, but your body refused to go along.

Actually, i think i have an idea of why it happened....i let my guard down ever so slightly in guarding my eyes the day before.

H' is telling me, even "harmlessly" looking at girls on facebook could have some unintended consequences.

Ashrecha Postal.

Can you get your filter to block Facebook? It's pretty dangerous I hear...

Yasher koach!  Keep it going!  I'm right behind you.  I'd be right beside you but I started a few days after you did.
