In Breaking the Cycle, sex addiction specialist George Collins offers a powerful, no-nonsense program for helping readers identify their unhealthy sexual patterns, overcome sex addiction, and start living more productive lives Sex addicts live with a compulsion they just can't shake-an inner voice that compels them to seek pornography, pursue sexual encounters with strangers, and do everything they can to gratify the sexual urges that won't go away. But people with sex addictions can learn to enjoy lives of productivity and purpose and develop true intimate connections with others. Breaking the Cycle helps readers learn to identify the triggers and compulsive thoughts that keep them trapped in the cycle of addiction and offers skills for countering those thoughts instead of simply caving to them. By drawing on their deepest values and ideals, readers find the strength to separate their true selves from their obsessive thoughts. Gradually, using exposure techniques, readers develop resistance to their former triggers and make sex addict behavior, and then the addictive thoughts themselves, a thing of the past.

"This is gripping stuff, and a real page-turner of a book. The real-life stories have the ring of truth, and the dialogue is unmistakably real. The use of trenchant, memorable lines, like, 'you can't get enough of what won't satisfy you, ' really get the message across." -- Bob, sex addict in recovery in California
