UNDERSTANDING SEX ADDICTION I mean...Is this REALLY even a THING?
For many people “Sex Addiction” just sounds like an excuse. Aren’t they just a cheating bastard?
When we think about addiction our minds recall drug or alcohol addiction. Sex addiction is not like this. When a person is addicted to drugs or alcohol then the answer is abstinence. Avoiding any drugs or alcohol at all. The goal of Sex Addiction healing is not abstinence...the goal is to be healthy and be able to enjoy a fulfilling normal sexual life with one’s partner. Sex addiction is better compared to food-addiction or overeating. The goal of a healthy diet is not to abstain from eating. It is to learn to eat in a healthy and moderate way that doesn’t destroy your body and allows you to enjoy the rest of your life.
The goal is to get your appetites under control.
A sex addict is simply someone who is morbidly obese when it comes to sexuality. Except our sexual appetites and actions don’t just impact ourselves. They affect those we love the most. A sex addict can get their sexual appetites under control and get healthy the same way that losing weight is an option for anyone who is following the right plan.

TORN BY PORN
Internet porn interacts with the brain in a way that increases desire and causes you to develop an insatiable hunger. It provides unique novelty, endless searching click by click, and the ability to find more shocking and intense images and videos. This is a capability that old school porn could never match.
This new access to porn is creating addictive patterns in people. This is just like smoking in the 1950’s. People who began to smoke never thought, “I want to get addicted to nicotine and get lung cancer and set myself up for a future health crisis.” People just thought it would be a little harmless fun. The smokers became unintentionally dependent upon it.
Porn follows the same pattern. People begin using porn as a means to feel better, for sexual stimulation, to reduce stress, and even to enhance their sexual experiences, but along the way people get hooked on the novelty and start searching for greater and greater levels of intensity. This begins the pattern of sexual addiction, leading many to a place where even real sexual experiences are no longer enough.
If you want to quit looking at porn, but cannot seem to stop then you have addiction. You need help and we know how to help you. We have helped thousands of people get free from this cycle. Call us today to get help!
