Sexual Addiction Awareness
A question that we frequently get asked is, “How do I know if I’m an addict?”
Understanding addiction especially sexual addiction you must have a basic understanding of how the brain works. We all literally have two brains, working in concert with each other. The two brains coordinating activities and managing life will determine the quality of a person’s life. The two parts of the brain is the primitive or emotional brain known as the (Limbic System) and the rational logical part known as the pre-frontal cortex. Ad addict has allowed the rational – moral – logical part of the brain to weaken when trying to deal with the compulsions that originate from the Limbic System.
Here is an email we recently received,
“I am sick to my core by virtue of my indulgence in pornography. To be honest my appetite for porn accounted for why I got the internet in the very first place and now that I am down in a horrendous pit I seriously wonder whether there is hope of recovery for me for whenever I log onto the internet I must view porn. What is wrong with me? Why can’t I change who I am presently? Is there any change possible in the future for me?”
