Hey, I'm a 25 year woman. I have had 196 sexual partners and was addicted to sex. When I caught herpes my addiction got worse and at my lowest point I was sleeping with 2 men a night. Thankfully I am not H.I.V positive even though I deserve it. Anyways, I have been celibate since November 24th 2015 and it is actually a miracle. Counselling definitely helped but I would say the two books that I read that helped the most were 'A Spiritual Guide to Battling Sex Addiction' and 'Out the Shadows: Understanding Sexual Addiction'. I recommend those two books to any1 who wants to truly understand and beat their addiction. Love you all and please pray that I continue my road to recovery. God bless you all!!!
