While it looks like an obvious, yet weak, attempt at trolling it does raise an interesting question about how to define the problem. Sure, alcoholics have the drink problem fairly neatly defined and the solution seems obvious i.e. don't drink that first drink.vladimir wrote:Does the Kiwi chapter advise mutton abstinence?Pol Pothead wrote:As far as addictions go, it sure beats alcoholism.
For someone suffering from a sexual addiction or sexual behaviour that is out of control the definition of their sobriety can't necessarily be as black and white as there will probably be behaviours in between that need to be addressed as well. No one said it was easy...back to someone who can't stop having affairs or using prostitutes as an example - there's a fair chance their behaviour in terms of the places they frequent or the websites the use to meet partners needs to be changed. Difficult to stop the affairs if you are a member of a dating website, using hook-up apps or hanging out in hostess bars for example.
