An Anonymous Addict

An anonymous addict writes a description of the inner world of a sex addict:

"We know better than others the limits of our sexual addiction:

... that it is solitary, furtive, and satisfies only itself,
... that, contrary to love, it is fleeting,
... that it demands hypocrisy,
... that it enfeebles strong sexual feeling,
... that it is humorless and cruel,
... that it destroys good feelings about our selves,
... that is hollow,
... that it distances us from our feelings,
... that it works to exclude our family,
... that it exploits power over others,
... that it causes us to abuse our bodies
... that we end up broken and alone."
