Publisher's Summary

Anyone who has struggled with sex addiction knows that living with constant sexual compulsions can be extremely difficult. But summoning the courage to find help for this condition can be even more of a challenge. If addictions to pornography, strip clubs, massage parlors, prostitutes, phone sex, or chat rooms have made you feel trapped, this book can help you find a way to break free. Written by a former sex addict who specializes in counseling people who suffer from sexually compulsive behavior, Breaking the Cycle presents a step-by-step plan to enjoying a life of productivity and purpose.

You can free yourself from the powerful, compulsive urges that may have damaged your career, finances, or relationships with friends and family. The exercises in this book will show you how to regain control of your life and build meaningful intimate connections with others.

    "Very Helpful in learning to think differently!"

    I have truly been helped by this "audio" version of this book. Now I recognize I have a problem and that my behavior is not "normal adult" behavior.

    "Useful techniques"
    Any additional comments?

    This book has many, many techniques to break the cycle and could, in my opinion, also be applied to other addiction behaviour and behaviour modification.
