Your biggest sex organ is your brain.
The road to your next relapse begins in your head. Forget about controlling your body until you learn to control your mind. It’s their thought lives that get sex addicts into trouble.
Ralph Waldo Emerson described the process brilliantly. “Sow a thought and you reap an action; sow an act and you reap a habit; sow a habit and you reap a character; sow a character and you reap a destiny.”
It starts with the mind. Maybe that’s why Scripture teaches us to “take captive every thought” (2 Corinthians 2:5) for a reason.
As I tell clients all the time, before you act out in your bed you act out in your head. And what you think today is what you do tomorrow.
Recovery Step: Do whatever is necessary to control your thought life.
