Sex and love addiction, like alcohol addiction, drugs addiction, and other addictions, can provide a “high” that the addict craves which can cause a dependency on a sexual high to feel normal. Addicts substitute unhealthy relationships for healthy ones. They opt for temporary pleasure (instant gratification) rather than the deeper qualities of “normal” intimate relationships. Sexual addiction follows the same progressive nature as other addictions. Sexual addicts struggle to control their behaviors, and experience despair over their constant failure to do so. They loss their self-esteem, fueling the need to escape even further into their addictive behaviors.
