Right discipline consists, not in external compulsion, but in the habits of mind which lead to desirable rather than undesirable activities.

For active sex and porn addicts, addictive behavior takes place no matter what, regardless of outward success, intelligence, physical attractiveness, existing intimate relationships, or anything else. Very often, feeling shameful or fearful, we tell ourselves, “This is the last time that I am going to behave in this way,” yet we are compelled to return to the same or a similar sexual situation. And we do this regardless of past, current, or continued consequences, including things like ruined relationships, trouble at work or in school, loss of self-esteem, depression, anxiety, emotional and physical isolation, financial issues, arrests, and more.

Task for Today
Think of three times you acted out in your addiction after telling yourself you wouldn’t.
