There is no chance, no destiny, no fate, that can hinder or control the firm resolve of a determined soul.

Dr. Robert Weiss says he initially noticed tech-related sexual issues in the early 1990s when online bulletin boards and porn sites first hit the web. Prior to that, his clients were mostly hooked on real-world sexuality—serial affairs, prostitutes, sex clubs and adult movie theaters, plus the occasional guy hooked on phone sex. Then, when home computers and ubiquitous internet connections came along, his clients were suddenly and primarily engaging in tech-driven sexuality. And this tech-sex trend continues unabated today, with digital-age addicts hooked on webcam sex, hookup apps, digital pornography, virtual reality sex play, and whatever else R&D departments can dream up. So, if we hope to establish lasting sobriety and recovery, we must set and maintain healthy boundaries around our use of technology.
