Sex addiction is on the increase - in the media as well as in the therapy room. But while more and more people seek help for their compulsive sexual behaviours, there is still confusion and debate about whether the condition even exists. Understanding and Treating Sex Addiction explains why an increasing number of people are inadvertently finding their lives devastated by their sexual behaviours. It explores the latest scientific understandings and research into why pornography, cyber sex, visiting sex workers, fetishes and multiple affairs can come to control some people's lives to the point that they can't stop. It explains how sex addiction is not a moral issue, as some assume, but a health issue that we as a society need to start taking seriously. Throughout the book are the revealing statistics from the UK's latest survey on sex addiction. Three hundred and fifty people who struggle with this condition have bravely and candidly shared their experience for the benefit of their fellow sufferers and those who choose to help them. This book contains support and advice for both the clinician and for those who suffer from sex addiction. As well as practical guidance and techniques for stopping compulsive behaviours and preventing relapse, there is also a thorough exploration of the deeper underlying causes and how these must be addressed.

Ten years ago pornography became the chains around my wrists and the shackles around my feet. It worked it's way into every facet of my life and began destroying me from the inside out. My relationships, my motivation, my aspirations; all of these things were being crushed under the weight of my addiction. I had tried multiple times in the past to break free from this self-erected prison cell, but it seemed hopeless. One day, after another failed attempt, I decided enough was enough. Last month I made the promise to myself that I wasn't going to remain a slave to pornography any longer. I held on tightly to that promise like it was my mother's hand, refused to let go, and worked harder than I ever had before to rid myself of this nasty habit. It started slowly, but eventually a week passed. Then another. Before I knew it I had abstained from pornography for an entire month; the longest I had gone in years. And I won. I beat my addiction. This book began as a journal and eventually evolved into what is it today: a self-help guide packed full of advice, resources, and even weekly summaries pertaining to my own experiences. I initially wrote this because it allowed me to gain a unique perspective on my own addiction, but I'm realizing that it has the potential to help others as well. I'm not a brilliant writer by any means, nor do I have the credentials to give life-changing advice, but if this book can help even a single individual break their addiction toward pornography, then I'd consider it a priceless masterpiece. To help someone breath the same air of freedom that I've been filling my lungs with since quitting would be one of the greatest gifts I could ever receive. This is my goal. This is my purpose. Maybe you are one of the millions who have fallen into this never-ending cycle. Maybe you are beginning to feel the detrimental affects of pornographic dependence. It's an intimidating reality to face, but the reward for facing it is much more beautiful than you can possibly imagine. If I was allowed to tell you only two words from this point forward, they would be "break free." Don't remain under the thumb of your computer screen. Don't let pictures of strangers on the internet dictate the direction of your life. Make the decision. Don't wait another day because days make way for years. Years simply make way for decades. Be the change in your own life. Break the chains. Be free.
