Consequences Build Slowly Over Time

This entry was posted in Daily Inspiration and tagged on

Acceptance of your situation is the first step toward overcoming your addiction.

Usually, addictions build slowly over time. This makes it difficult for sex and porn addicts to clearly see the ways in which life has changed for the worse. Consequences that even a casual outside observer could readily identify as catastrophic can, for many sex and porn addicts, gradually become the norm. Because of this, the insanity of addiction can look perfectly normal to the addict. It’s like placing a frog in a pot of warm water that is then set to boil. Because the temperature rises only incrementally, the frog never even realizes it’s being cooked.

Just for Today
Think about how your consequences started small and then escalated without you really noticing (or caring).
