The fact is, addiction is a disease that impacts the brain.
Stopping drug or alcohol abuse is not simply a matter of willpower.
Drugs and alcohol can change the brain to foster compulsive use and abuse.
Addiction treatment usually requires a combination of medication and addiction counseling or substance abuse therapy.
Sex addiction is characterized by an individual’s intense desire to take part in sexual activity.
Some of the activities that, when taken part in obsessively or excessively, may indicate an obsession with sex include: Sex addiction typically causes the addicts thinking to be distorted and they will often rationalize their behavior in some way.
The quality of a cybersex encounter typically depends upon the participants' abilities to evoke a vivid, visceral mental picture in the minds of their partners.

Many people believe that addicts can stop if they are simply willing to change their behavior.Cybersex, also called computer sex, Internet sex, netsex and, colloquially, cyber or cybering, is a virtual sex encounter in which two or more people connected remotely via computer network send each other sexually explicit messages describing a sexual experience.In one form, this fantasy sex is accomplished by the participants describing their actions and responding to their chat partners in a mostly written form designed to stimulate their own sexual feelings and fantasies. Even wives of sex addicts farther along in recovery may still be living in fear, or that old fear may creep up again, if you aren’t keeping her in the know about your recovery. Maybe not, and your marriage will suffer–or end–if this is the case.
If you are one of those who is taking recovery seriously you have probably received guidance from many individuals: therapists, sponsors, coaches, books, meetings, etc. It is important to remember that those who are there to help you through your personal recovery are not often marriage experts and some of their well-meaning marriage advice may hurt more than help. By putting your recovery first you are doing what is best for her. Ignore all advice that sounds anything like what I mentioned above–that “her side of the street” stuff. So, how do you let your wife in while respecting the anonymity of the group, while being able to feel safe in your counseling sessions without having to worry about having to go back and report everything that was said? Give her so much information that she doesn’t have to ask.Cybersex is commonly performed in Internet chat rooms (such as IRC, talkers or web chats) and on instant messaging systems.
