All of us who have struggled with sexual addictions have had to face the reality of lost innocence. Whether we're recovering from addiction to pornography or other forms of sexual compulsion, a big part of recovery is facing the need to 'unlearn' our behavior. Maybe you need to quit so you can be truly intimate with your spouse, or just so you can confidently look yourself and others in the eye. Whatever the reason, until we can get all those terrible tempting thoughts under control, we will not be free of our sexual addictions. By understanding the sex drugs, getting sexual addiction help, and 'reprogramming' our sex drive, we can make great progress toward recovered innocence.

I never thought people could quite be "addicted" to sex, but I've been hearing about it more and more, and it seems to be quite common and is a real problem...sex really IS a drug, although I'm still not certain I'm 100% sure how one gets those thoughts and actions under control; I guess I'll have to look into it smile.gif

Just as the article suggests, it will take as much persistent action and imagination to chase those thoughts away as it took to develop them. The good news is, as you continue under control, the temptations continue to weaken, making control easier. The bad news is, if you allow sexual addiction to co ntinue to control your thought and action, the addiction becomes stronger and more compulsive. The a huge difference between a healthy sex drive and sexual addiction is whether you're in control...attraction or compulsion.

Hi, Steve here.

I am struggling with addiction with sex and porn. I've managed to stop the more troublesome behaviors (infidelity, sex with strangers, voyerism, exhibitionism, and porn). I still struggle with sexual thoughts, objectifying people, fantasy, cybersex, and masturbation.

I am married, but there hasn't been anything going on there for nearly two years. I think partly because of past infidelity, age and, to be honest, normal sex is no longer possible. I have no doubt that sex is a drug. I realize that I need to reprogram my brain. It is a daunting task - to say the least.
