The article entitled “What No One Tells You About Sex Addiction Recovery” provides one of the best descriptions of real recovery I have ever read. In her article, Avalon Vic shared honestly about her experience of discovering her husband’s sex addiction, which secretly spanned decades. She then provided a detailed description of the recovery process for her and her husband, contrasting her “before recovery” and “active in recovery” experiences. The article is packed with gems of wisdom that inspire hope. She shares the truth that “recovery from addiction is hard work, but experiencing emotional intimacy and feeling connected makes it more than worth the effort.” Though this article has an LDS faith element to it, I believe that all people, regardless of their religious views, will gain tremendously from reading this article. Long-term healing from sexual addiction is possible!
