Lots of people joke about sex addiction, saying, “Where do I sign up?” Those people don’t understand what it’s like to be a sex addict.

Many people view sex and porn addictions as less serious than ‘real’ addictions (i.e., substance addictions). In reality, nothing could be further from the truth. Sex and porn addiction bring the same types and levels of misery as alcoholism and drug addiction—relationship trouble, issues at work or in school, declining physical or emotional health (depression, anxiety, loss of self-esteem, etc.), emotional and physical isolation, financial woes, loss of interest in previously enjoyable activities, legal trouble, and more.
