Sex Addiction and Drug Use

This entry was posted in Daily Inspiration and tagged on

Happiness is where we find it, but rarely where we seek it.

Sometimes drug users and drug addicts, particularly those who abuse cocaine, methamphetamine, and other stimulant/party drugs, can become hypersexual when high—especially if they add Viagra or another erection enhancing drug to the mix. This does not, however, make these people sex addicts. If the hypersexual behavior ends when the drug use ends, a diagnosis of sexual addiction is probably not appropriate. If the hypersexual behavior continues, however, they may well be sexually addicted.

Just for Today
Consider the ways in which your substance use has interacted with and/or impacted your sexual addiction.
