July 17 Celibacy VIII

In SLAA (Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous) each person decides what their bottom line behavior is that they will abstain from. We also abstain from behaviors we consider a “slippery slope” which leads to acting out on the bottom line behavior. Abstaining from porn is difficult at times because sometimes I just want to escape my reality into fantasy but for me, being a recovering sex and love addict, one is too many and a thousand is never enough. In other words, I’m completely powerless to stop the addiction once I start.

Today I am a grateful, recovering sex and love addict. I have given God this destructive addiction I am powerless to stop by myself. In turn, He gives me the power to abstain one day at a time. Thank you God!
