Technology is a useful servant but a dangerous master.

The basics of sex and porn addiction are the same with or without the involvement of technology. As sex and porn addicts, we engage in our problematic sexual behaviors repeatedly and compulsively, despite clearly related negative life consequences, and we do this with or without the assistance of technology. Sure, some of us prefer ‘pixel sex’ to real-world sex, or vice versa, but the lack of availability of one or the other doesn’t stop us. With the advent of digital technology, the primary thing that has changed for us is the manner and speed with which we can locate and access the sexual content and partners that fuel our addiction.

Task for Today
Recognize that you can use technology to aid your recovery, much as you used it to fuel your addiction.
