Sex Addiction Rehab Portland ME

Cleaning house at the beginning of your recovery will save you from the terrible experience of keeping that "one" magazine or video that could possibly cause you to relapse. Many sex addicts that I have counseled had their first relapse with "the one I didn't throw away." To prevent this experience from happening, it is imperative to throw away (don't try to sell or inflict this material on anyone else) any item that could cause you to relapse.

To prevent this experience from happening, it is imperative to throw away (don't try to sell or inflict this material on anyone else) any item that could cause you to relapse. For some sex addicts, this will be a magazine, a video, an article of clothes or possibly a computer disk.
