Hi fellas,

I started attending online meetings for sex and love addiction.

There is incredibly powerful information in their material and the authenticity of meetings and the contacts I'm making are beyond anything I'm used to.

I know some of the members here are already well into their recovery programs and I've seen a pattern of health coming from those individuals. Its something I want.

Now that I've taken a good look at my CSA, I feel that it deserves a SOBER look at what I need to do for healing.

It's just not something I can manage effectively while I am engaging in fantasy, intrigue, and run of the mill acting out.

I'm looking forward to this new chapter.

I might be 'away' for a bit, until I get my legs.

If any of you are in recovery and wish to contact me privately, I would be more than happy to try to walk hand in hand with you.

Thanks for the amazing journey!

Michael

Sex addiction is understandable

What is love addiction? Do you mean the constant urge to feel being loved and cared for?

Well, "love" should be in quotes. It's not about real love at all. It's about using other people for a emotional/chemical fix in much the same way people drink or do drugs.

And whoa...this 'illness' is much much more serious and deep than I thought.

If I wasn't acting out physically, I was obsessing over someone, or being obsessed over.

Or freezing over completely. (sexual emotional anorexia)

This stuff is serious. Even deadly.

The shit I've done.

And now I find myself in the company of men and women who have been there and are managing and thriving one day at a time. This is NOT a situation any of us can handle without HELP.

Yikes, "love" addiction. Great, that could be me. Something else to worry about now. I think maybe I used to do this with my friends in HS and college. Is this where you are dependent on affection from others for your self worth?

I hope it works. I always found success in those 12 step programs, especially if your group has good people in it.
