Addiction is a battle that many lose to over and over again. The good news is….even though you may lose the battles, you can win the war.
One big challenge with addictive behaviors is that people mainly recognize only drugs and alcohol as the culprits. Today sex addiction is becoming more of an issue in relationships.
An article published on foxnews.com highlights the sex addiction of a former NFL football player Mike Caussin. His sex addiction has caused marital issues between him and wife Jana Kramer. Within the article the couple brings a few pointers to shed light about how to overcome sex addiction within a marriage.
This is what happens when you don’t face your addiction.
#1 Shame On You!
Most people don’t seek help for addictions because it will cause shame and embarrassment. The true shame of addiction occurs when you don’t admit you have an issue and when you don’t seek the treatment you need.
#2 A Rocky Family.
Active and continuous addictive behaviors when left untreated will cause family instability. Addiction doesn’t just affect the prime participant, it has adverse emotional and physical effects on all family members.
#3 You lose.
Addictive behaviors cause you to become ineffective in significant areas of your life. When you fail to properly address the issues of addiction your lifestyle goes down. You lose financial, material, relationships, careers, family and most importantly you lose YOURSELF.
Everybody knows somebody. Battles with addiction should not be faced alone.
