Although at the moment you feel this pain and discomfort, there will also be days ahead when your addiction will attempt to have you forget it. If your addiction can get you to forget this pain and discomfort, it will become easier to talk you into "another ride" on the sexual addiction train. It is in the pain and discomfort of the reality of what your addiction has cost you that you may feel committed "not to do that again!"
