“Hi, I’m Melissa and I’m a sex addict.” This was her first Sex Addicts Anonymous meeting and her road to recovery.
This story is fiction but it was inspired by a rundown of the movie, Addicted on YouTube. It’s about a married woman and mother with a sex addiction which affected her marriage, her relationship with her children and her job. Here’s the trailer, if you’re interested.
