    hi,

    Is there anyone who has a sex addict partner or spouse who really mend their compulsive behaviour and change over a new leaf? Please share your stories

    It's alright being a sex addict, it even helps the relationship in the long term. You only see marriage break down due to lack of sex, you never see a marriage break down due to too much sex.

    What i mean is a sex addict partner who act out. Google sex addict and see the definition of sex addict. People who has lotsa sex with their own partner are not considered sex addict. Its those who engage in sex with pros or anonymous and cant stop their actions despite knowing the negative impact or feeling guilty. I m asking whether theres successful cases of sex addict partners who mend their ways and stop their cheating actions.

    If it is overdone and causing disruption to the spouse's livelihood and well being, then it is a symptom of addiction.

    Yes, there is a difference. An addict loses himself. They do it despite hurting everything else that is important to him.
    Likewise with gambling. There are professional gamblers, they make a living from it. As long as they remain low profile enough, casinos don't really bother with them. Same with frauds, banks for the longest time knows their weakness in current payment systems but live with it because the cost to change it is not justified.

    While many others are wannables that loses themselves in a fantasy that they can be King of gamblers. These are the people that supports the trade. Not the casual holiday punter. Likewise, its the sex addict that the sex industry is zoomed in.

    Even with professional medical help , these sex addicts are only contained. To completely change their habits and ways...

    In another words, you are telling me that it is close to zero chance that a Sex addict will stop and not go back to their addicts? Thanks for your honesty in your opinions. I m struggling to believe that there are successful stories, hence, my post here, trying to find some kind souls who had gone through the same thing but maybe now living happily...I felt so hopeless

    Perhaps you can describe in more details the situations you are facing. I don't think we ever know if an addict can be completely "cured", but I believe many are coping well enough to lead a normal life with the family.

    The biggest challenge and problem is that commercial sex is so readily available that addict doesn't even need to constantly seek for new partners. They just pay for transactional sex.
