Truth: If it causes destructive behavior, it’s a problem

Think of what characterizes an issue with anything. Whether it’s drinking, gambling, or having sex, many people around the world are capable of doing all of those things without having a problem. It becomes a problem when those behaviors lead to destructive behaviors. Like when drinking leads to DUIs, when gambling leads to gambling away one’s home, and when sex leads to sleeping with someone very inappropriate to sleep with. Sex addiction doesn’t simply mean loving sex. It means having an unhealthy relationship with it.
