What is Sex and Love Addiction?

Sex and Love Addiction is a disease of extremes—too much or too little. There are sex addicts and sexual anorexics (or avoiders). Some people are romance addicts, and the anorexics avoid romance and love totally. Others are addicted to relationships, and their opposites abstain from love relationships completely.

 

This addiction is a baffling, cunning, and powerful thief. It steals time from your family, friends and career. You are extremely focused on your addiction–but not on what truly gives your life meaning. For some addicts, jobs, relationships or freedom are lost, as well as large sums of money.

 

This addiction affects the type of people we choose to get to know and date, the way we date, the quality of our relationships and marriages, our ability to be good parents, and how we function in every other part of life, as well.

 

Do you or someone you love…

  • Spend a lot of time on the computer looking at internet porn?
  • Often find yourself preoccupied with sexual thoughts?
  • Hurt people you love because of your sexual behavior?
  • Make efforts to quit a type of sexual activity and fail?
  • Feel depressed or ashamed about your sexual behavior?
  • Think that if you find the right person all your problems will be solved?
  • Go from one relationship to another in search of that “right” person?

 

Research shows that the following are extremely helpful in recovery:

  • Inpatient treatment
