Where is the addict IN control?
I'm a lust addict. What does that mean? It means that even when I'm not actually doing the big act, I'm thinking about it. I'm fantasizing. I'm checking out women for lower-level excitement. And the pressure builds until I am completely out of control and act out again.
I have found that the place where I can exert the most influence is with these smaller hits of the lust drug. If I don't take the small doses, then I have a much easier time resisting the bigger stuff.
