Hello & Welcome to Just Answers.

You're not alone, and there is plenty of help for you. I'm going to give you some links that will teach you about sexual addiction and what you can do to free yourself. There are peer meetings in person and on the internet, there are books and plenty of online support and accountability connections you can use to turn it all around. Take this window of opportunity and hang on with all your might: you may not be so motivated at another time, so act now and run with it.

You're most welcome, and i wish you the best of luck with your new path.


We don't offer counseling services here, only a Question & Answer format. If you're looking for an interactive experience with a counselor, you can go to sites like Live Person and talk with someone at any time.

There is no cure for any addiction, there is only abstinence from active addiction and recovery. I think you should try an online therapy site so that you can get this off your chest as soon as possible.
