Letter to myself:

Dear Sex Addict, you’ve been lying to yourself for far too long and you’re only hurting yourself and those you love. You’ve ruined your sex life with your wife. You’ve alienated yourself from God. You’re riddled with guilt and self-hatred. I’ve spent far too much of my life letting others control me, including you and I’ve had enough. I’m moving forward with honesty and accountability and without you. Good-bye.

Letter from my sex addict:

Ha! I’ve been with you for 30 years. What makes you think I’m going anywhere now? You forget how good I make you feel. I give you something you never get in real life, and there’s no way you’re going to give it up. Just you wait, this time won’t be any different than any of the other times you’ve tried to get rid of me. I’m here to stay.
