I have an addictive personality and have been addicted to alcohol. tobacco, marijuana, food and sex at different times of my life ( in my 60s ). My behaviour has caused me and my family a lot of heartache. At the moment I am only addicted to sex. You know you have a problem when doing the thing does not actually give you any type of buzz. Instead it is temporarily feeding the addiction. As an alcoholic you don't feel any buzz at all from booze. You just have less pain and feel a bit more like everyone else i.e Normal! That's why alcoholics start the day with a drink. The same can be said of tobacco. As soon as you light one up you are thinking of the next one. As far as sex addiction is concerned the best thing to do imo is to reduce the amount of punting and stick to one regular if you can. Part of the addiction is for seeing new women and feeling new flesh each time.
