Grateful people are happy people.
Greek philosopher Epicurus once said, “Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.” For sex addicts, of course, this is not a natural way of looking at life. As sex addicts, we seem to always want what we don’t have, sexual or otherwise. In recovery, we must learn that what we have is enough, and usually it’s more than enough. The good news is that when we finally see and accept that truth, many of the triggers that set off our addiction simply disappear.
