As the aforementioned guy has not been around for a while, due to an argument we had (in which i wanted him to stay and.... - and he said he was 'tired' and wanted to go home) and i am finding myself obsessing how bitter and resentful i am towards him - and that its his fault i continue to self destruct and that he could have 'saved me' which i know is crap.
Surely i am not alone, but maybe like me, are a little worried about talking openly about such a delicate subject?

Good for you for having the courage to talk about this. I can't say I have any personal experience in this area, however, I am more than willing to listen. This was a brave decision to make and it may help others to open up.

When I was young I was promiscuous but I don't think it was an addiction so much as an inability to establish healthy boundries. I seldom experienced physical pleasure from the experiences although it did fill an emotional void. I suppose that could be viewed as addictive behavior although back then sexual addiction wasn't even known of.
Don't avoid the site Rosie. Above all don't be embarrassed. We're all adults here. You have absolutely nothing to be embarrassed about.

Long ago and far away when your uncle Ed was young I think I was addicted to sex in as much as I found it helped me cope with boredom and depression.
I was also addicted to danger as well, jumping out of airplanes, hunting sharks, martial arts, falling off mountains and lots of dangerous sports.
I think if we use sex as a means of coping with life rather than the normal reasons perhaps we might be called addicts.

Mine is not saying no, its the rush and release - the feeling of wellbeing after - which is followed by feelings of being 'bad'. I cant say much more on such an open forum, but its like my release mechanism of sorts - like taking a drug.
