Early Sex Addiction Recovery: The Wave

« Back to Blog Overviews

Discovery is a little like being crushed by a huge ocean wave. Early Sex addiction recovery is like a that wave pummels you for what seems like forever.

Instinct takes over and you fight to catch a breath. It’s a fight you can’t win, so you surrender yourself to the fate of the angry sea.

And the wave carries you slowly to shore.

Early sex addiction recovery can be like a wave of pain, shame, and fear that carries you through the first weeks. Driven forward in a desperate attempt to keep from drowning, you listen and you follow directions. In time, recovery gets easier until one day you’re resting on the beach.

The beach seems safe.

Vaguely aware that dangers lie ahead, you rest.

Sure enough, you rest too long and an even larger wave grabs you and pulls you back into the surf. This time you know what to do and so you ‘re able to keep yourself out of the worst surf as you ride a smaller wave back to shore.

Will you rest again on the beach?

Will you risk it all for more excitement in the surf?

Or, will you step off the beach and take your first steps on this new land?

It’s up to you…
