Thank you, DJ, for sharing this introspective and vulnerable piece.

I’ve heard so many negative and I guess you’d call it ‘micro-aggressive’ comments about sex addiction. Everything from what you said, ‘get some control of yourself’ to ‘wow, that’s a problem??’

Yes, actually, it is a problem, when not handled properly.

While sex addiction is poor impulse control not a chemical addiction, it mimics the behavior. Like a chemical addiction, it can ruin your life if left unchecked.

It sounds like you truly have it in check and are able to enjoy yourself without the damaging repercussions that could have occurred had you not gotten yourself and your impulses in check.
