I am grateful every day that my diet Pepsi addiction is NOT a sex addiction. If it were, my self talk would go a little something like this:
"When I wake up tomorrow morning. I am going to be STRONG. I am NOT going to go trolling for strange men to have sex with. I am going to remain focused on the changes I want to make in my life. I am NOT going to sleep with men who don't love me and don't care about what makes me happy! I am going to focus on good health and how great I feel about myself not having sex for sex's sake. I am NOT going to fuck strangers, I'm NOT going to fuck strangers, I'm NOT going to fuck strangers..."
Five seconds after I get out of bed, "Hey, stranger! Wanna fuck?"
