It’s not the load that breaks you, it’s trying to carry the entire thing all by yourself.
When we are triggered toward our addiction, the most effective way to combat it is to talk to another recovering sex or porn addict, letting that person know we are struggling and asking for assistance. Without doubt, the sex and porn addicts who are most successful in recovery are those who are willing to throw themselves into the sexual sobriety community – participating in sexual recovery meetings, socializing with other group members, making and taking recovery-related phone calls, and willingly being of service. The more we do this, the easier it is to reach out when we’re in need.
Task for Today
Call another recovering addict. If you don’t need help yourself, ask how the other person is doing.
