Mindfulness practice is an important part of all addiction recovery but it is even more important in sex addiction recovery.

In staying away from drugs and alcohol there are often specific external triggers that can be avoided.  This is a way to keep the addict’s mind from facing the choice to give in to the urge.

But in sex addiction there are not only external triggers, driving through the strip club neighborhood, browsing on the internet, etc. but there are powerful internal triggers as well.
