Our sex and love addiction was connected with many habits — big and little.
Some of them were thinking habits, or things we felt inside ourselves. Others were doing habits — things we did, actions we took.
In getting used to not acting out, we have found that we needed new habits to take the place of those old ones.
After we spent a few months practicing these new, sober habits or ways of acting and thinking, they became almost second nature to most of us,
as acting out used to be. Not acting out has become natural and easy, not a long, dreary struggle.
