Sexual addiction is the cause of, not the solution to, your unhappiness.
Active sex addicts rarely view their escapist sexual fantasies and behaviors as the cause of their unhappiness and life challenges. Even when they are neck deep in consequences, they somehow don’t let themselves view their sexual acting out as a contributing factor. In fact, they typically see their behavior as the solution to rather than the cause of their emotional discomfort and various life problems—at least until a major crisis hits. Prior to that, they ignore blatant warning signs: destroyed relationships, workplace reprimands, STDs, unwanted pregnancies, financial problems, arrests, etc.
