Sex and Porn Addiction Are Not Driven by Drug Use

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

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

Task for Today
Consider the ways in which your substance use has interacted with and impacted your sexual behavior.
