When things go wrong, don’t go with them.
The core signs and symptoms of sex and porn addiction are generally the same regardless of age, race, gender, social history, and psychological underpinnings. For instance, nearly all sex and porn addicts experience withdrawal. With sex and porn addiction, withdrawal tends to manifest not so much physically, as often occurs with alcoholism and drug addiction – night sweats, elevated blood pressure, delirium tremens, hallucinations, etc. – but emotionally and psychologically. In sex and porn addiction withdrawal, we tend to become depressed or anxious, or restless, irritable, and discontent.
Just for Today
Try to think about being in a poor mood as a form of withdrawal that will pass as you establish and maintain your sobriety.
