Answer
1. One should never indulge in a voluntary break. Indulge in Yogic practice and a pure lifestyle with devotion to the Lord & meditation. Perform physical exercise. Donot repeat the mistake.

2. When a life of Yoga & Brahmacharya is practiced with honesty, the desire for external things such as clothes etc. will gradually reduce by itself after a few years.

3. You have yourself experienced the effects of such indulgence. A pure vegetarian diet helps maintain Brahmacharya better during the initial years. The type of food does not matter much to the advanced Yogi; the same however cannot be said of the beginner. Alcohol is also unwanted and unfavorable to the practice.

Questions concerning the practice of 'Brahmacharya' to know the self, & the means required are dealt with here.

Experience

The term 'Yoga' is a derivative of the Samskruth verb 'Yuj' which refers to union. 'Yoga', also called 'Brahma vidy‚' is the eternal dissolution of the individual 'Aham' (Ego) into the Atman (self) for 'Mukti' (liberation). Mere indulgence in '¬sana' or physical postures is not Yoga. ¬sana is only one limb or 'Anga' of Yoga. The eight limbs viz. Yama, Niyama, ¬sana, Pr‚n‚y‚ma, Praty‚h‚ra, Dh‚rana, Dhy‚na and Sam‚dhi are the means to Yoga. Brahmacharya or spiritually based continence is one of the important components of 'Yama'. 'Brahmacharya':- "Brahmani charyathey ithi" - "To surrender one's Ego and go with the will of the Almighty."
