After a tiring soccer practice, Jack rewarded himself by indulging in a box of doughnuts (with sprinkles).

Since this refers to a positive reinforcement, use indulge.

If in a negative sense, use wallow:

Jack tripped and fell, and caused his team to lose the game. All he could do now is wallow in his misery.

See wallow:

  1. verb
    If you say that someone is wallowing in an unpleasant situation, you are criticizing them for being deliberately unhappy.
