Humorist Mason Cooley said, “The cure for any obsession is to get another one.” Studies confirm that a majority of sex addicts have dual addictions.
The Bible makes no distinction among our various obsessions. It calls all of us “wrongdoers” (1 Corinthians 6:9).
The answer is to quit trading one obsession for another. Lay them all down. Of course, that won’t be easy. It will take hard work, recovery work, and God’s work. But it can be done.
True freedom can only come when we find freedom from every compulsive activity, no matter how innocent they may seem.
Recovery Step: Pray the Third Step Prayer. “My God, I offer myself to you, to build in me and do with me as you will. Relieve me of the bondage of self, that I may better do your will. Take away my difficulties, that victory over them may bear witness to those I would help of your power, your love, and your way of life.”
