Turning "It" Over: Dealing with a Sex Addiction

Turning "It" Over

Dr. Doug Weiss - 11/16/2007

This exercise is helpful to the recovering sex addict to lessen the need to be totally in control of your sexual organs. At some point in your recovery, you will do a Step Three. This is where you turn your "life and will" over to the care of God as you understand Him.

This decision includes your sexuality and sexual organs. Turning the decision of who you share your sexuality with including being sexual with yourself doesn't have to be yours totally to make. You can turn your sexuality over to God and it can be freeing. As one addict stated "the way I figure, I'm the third man on the totem pole when it comes to my sexual organ. First is God, He made me, second is my wife, I gave her myself at the alter, and third is myself. If I can get my wife and God's permission, I'm okay. If not, I'm not the sole owner."

This discussion may seem light but the results were life changing when this addict no longer felt responsible for his sexual organ. "That's God's business." The prayer is simple. Find a quiet time with God and communicate to Him that you are surrendering your sexual organ to do His will and not your own and that you will trust Him to manage it from here on out.

This prayer when internalized, can be an honest tool for recovery. Some make this a daily prayer in their early recovery.
