    I Could Sleep My Life Away

    My Addiction Hmm

    I am a sex addict. It's not what everyone

    thinks it is and it isn't easy to stop. There are many forms of it and different levels of addiction. People can swing from one extreme to the other, extreme obsession or extreme avoidance. It sucks.
