Hi @mercyboo4u, thank you for sharing what you've been going through. Addictions of any kind can be devastating to personal and professional life.

If it's becoming too much for you, don't hesitate to reach out to your doctor, or to a support organization like SAA. They can put in contact with therapists or support groups in your area that can help you to learn to manage and recover.

Take care,


Sex addiction: Where to get help?

I have had problems with this since age 16. I had issues with my fiance because of his drug and alcohol abuse, and therefore domestic violence for months... actually off and on for the 5 years we were together. But I was faithful the whole time even though we rarely even slept together in the same bed for the last 8 months. He left Jan 3. Since then I've been so tempted by sex. Have had offers including one persistent married man who's a good friend. I refuse to cause him to cheat on his wife, at least with me. This is a daily temptation for me, whether in person or by sexting with someone I dated 37 years ago. I'm going to Celebrate Recovery and trying to keep busy to keep my mind off it and take it one day at a time. Drug addict or not, my J was the love of my life and I miss him. But don't miss who he'd become. I'm relearning day by day to live on my own. But I do miss sex.
