Sex Addiction Therapy Bennington VT

Prayer is something that many sexual addicts find difficult to do. This is especially true if they have been avoiding God because of the shame and guilt of their behavior or possibly what was done to them in the past. Prayer is simply a behavior that when put in place, can change the addict's disposition. We know from other addictions that an addiction is basically self will run riot. This expression of addiction is basically "doing your own thing." Read for more.
