As addicts, we tell huge and powerful lies – most of all to ourselves.
Active sex and porn addicts routinely ignore warning signs of problematic behavior – ruined relationships, depression and anxiety, trouble in school or at work, financial problems, arrest, etc. Even when we are forced to look at the consequences of our addiction, we place the blame on others and continue our activities without a second thought. It’s as if we are unable to see, or we refuse to see, the destructive effects that our addictive behaviors have not only on ourselves but on our loved ones. In other words, we ‘deny’ that our addiction is a problem.
Task for Today
Examine lies have you told yourself and believed about your sexual addiction.
