Based on the information from the past two months of articles on the subject of compulsive sexual acting out-a sexual addiction results from an abuse of the natural sex drive that each person is born with. The abuse can start at any time in life and then progresses until it becomes a compulsion that the sexually addicted person cannot cope with. The sexual addiction eventually affects every part of the individual’s life, including self-respect, relationships with family and friends, and finances and career. For the sexually addicted person, sex is not the profoundly wonderful experience it is supposed to be. A sexual addiction is like alcohol to an alcoholic and drugs to a junkie. It is a fix that the sexually addicted person will do just about anything to get. It is a compulsive drive that brings short term thrills and long term miseries. And just like alcohol or drugs, overcoming it can be the most important decision in a man’s life.
