Sex addiction is a disease of isolation.
Novelist Dean Koontz once wrote, “A fine line separates the weary recluse from the fearful hermit. Finer still is the line between hermit and bitter misanthrope.” Sex addiction is a disease that wants to cross those lines. This disease wants its victims alone and isolated, so it can both nurture and prey upon their shame. When there is nobody in the addict’s life to provide emotional comfort and to point out that things are not as bad as they seem, the addiction has free reign.
