Default I've got it all wrong

To keep it plain and simple, I love sex. In my mind, it can make anything better.....but the more I have sex the more She (my lustful side) takes over. A recovering alcoholic can't just have a sip. Right?

Does it ever feel like you're trying to use sex as a solution for your problems in life? Cause that keeps happening to me.

Yes, all the time. When I'm mad, sad, frustrated, nervous, bored, and of course when I'm happy or excited. I feel like I need it to cope, it's my drug. This is what scares me the most. I feel like if I were to encounter something tragic or devastating in my life, I'd nearly lose myself completely. I'll become her.

So you love sex, what's the big deal? As long as you're playing safe (using protection and birth control), and you're not hurting anyone, then how is it a problem? Trust me, there are way worse coping mechanisms that you can have.

I'm so sorry you're hurting so much, Menotshe I hope you're doing ok. It's been a while since you posted here. Do you see a therapist? Maybe that could help. You could learn new ways to cope with your feelings. I'd suggest to start working on yourself and to reach out to a professional to get help. Hopefully if you'll be able to work on your problems you won't feel the need to have as much sex as you currently do. Please keep us updated if you can and want and if you're reading this! We all care about you here! We all love you here! Feel free to vent and to write here as much as you need and want! You know we won't judge you! I promise you that! You're a strong, wonderful person! You're awesome! You're strong! You're a warrior! I believe in you! We all believe in you! We're all rooting for you! Remember that we're here for you if you need it! Feel free to PM me anytime. Let me know if I can do something to help you! Wish you good luck! Let us know how it goes! I'm so sorry you have to deal with all of this, Menotshe! Please don't give up hope! Try to hang on as much as you can! I'm sure you'll be able to get through all of this! Just try to do your best! That's all you can do after all and it's more than enough! I'm so sorry you'rer going through all of this! You don't deserve to suffer at all! Nobody deserves to suffer at all! You're a strong, wonderful person! Please remember that!

I too am a sex addict. But it is ok to have a healthy relationship. One that doesn't revolve around sex. I have to believe in healthy relationships. My parents have a good marriage. And so can i. It doesn't have to always have protection.
