My life has been full of isolation and darkness. My addiction started at the age of 7, and I have gone to extreme lengths to try to stop my cravings, but nothing ever worked for long periods of time. This course has been a helpful hand during a time that I felt as though I were drowning. I have been shown the root of my sexual addiction and been shown ways to get out. It is like a glass of cold water or a fresh breath of air, to know that I have a hope, that I can overcome this addiction. Thanks to this course and to Troy L. Love, I now have a greater hold on my recovery. I no longer fear the unknown, I no longer fear tomorrow, but look forward to my future.
