Addiction is the only illness that tells you that you don't have it.

    Maureen Canning, a therapist at The Meadows, believes at least half of the sexually addicted
    or co-sexually addicted people in America have to be women.

    If not, who are the sexually addicted or co-sexually addicted men acting out with? Themselves?

    Sexual addiction is said to be the most powerful addiction of them all.

    It is always the very last addiction recovering alcoholics & drug addicts self identify in themselves.

    Sex, love, romance & co-sex addicts always leave a trail of destruction behind them.

    Women in recovery for sex, love or romance addiction must self identify
    their very own personal  bottom line behaviors.

    They must also self identify their triggers which are certain people, images, places, thoughts,
    things, objects or feelings that cause them to go into a trance like state of being & act out sexually.

    There is no intimacy in sex, love or romance addiction whatsoever.

    The sex addict comes on, the love addict hangs on & the romance addict always moves on.

    General signpost in women:  (  Sex Industry Workers  )

    Women who suffer from  hypersexuality  or  promiscuity  through no fault of their own ( victims of sexual abuse ).

    Women who think more like a man when it comes to relationships, commitment or sex ( important signpost ).

    Women who act out sexually, romantically or emotionally to lesson their pain or augment their pleasure.

    Women who do not want to be in a committed relationship but at the same time wants men
    to be sexual with them in secret behind closed doors so their family members, friends, loved ones
    or co-workers will not find out about it ( engaging in activities they would not want anyone to know about ).

    Women who routinely talk about abuse from another man in an attempt to make men feel sorry for them.

    Women who treat men & themselves like sex objects & not real live persons with feelings ( depersonalization ).

    Women who unconsciously  reenact  the exact type of sex acts they were abused with in their past lives
    out on to themselves or their romantic relationship partners.

    Women who unconsciously  reenact  their past life sexual abuse or incest issues out on to men
    who they are being sexual with in the form of sadistic relationship behaviors such as
    the emotionally abusive cat & mouse game or now she loves me now she don't game.

    Women who practice sadistic relationship behaviors such as trying to get men they have taken power over
    all hooked into them by being sexual, romantic or emotionally connected with them & then suddenly & without
    prior warning abandon them in a very cruel & sadistic manner & then become overly nice to them & encourage
    them to remain friends just so they string them along, keep them on the hook & make them a part of their stash.
    All addicts have their stash & this includes female sex, love, romance & co-sex addicts.
    They do this so they will never run out of sexual, romantic or emotional acting out partners.

    Women who carry internalized rage from their unmet needs in the past & reenact that out on to men
    who they are being sexual, romantic or emotional with in the form of covert or overt emotional abuse,
    abandonment threats or actual abandonment. Taking power in the sexual arena is sexual acting out.

    Women who obtain  legal restraining orders  against their sexual acting out partners
    & then invite them back over to their place of residence & have sex with them.

    Women who lead a secret double life & go to great lengths to hide that fact from their family members, friends,
    co-workers & their outside world but not necessarily their sexual acting out partners
    who they carefully select knowing that they will enable them by agreeing to keep secrets
    in exchange for future or ongoing acting out privileges ( acting out buddies ).

    Women whose behind closed doors sexual behavior does not match the image of herself
    that she attempts to project to her outside world.
    Look at me, look at who I am, how perfect I am, how beautiful I am.
    See how everything about me is perfect.
    My neat & clean home, my superior way of dressing myself, carrying myself, my nice clean late model car,
    my work ethics, my career, my health, my religion, my education, my family, my relationships, my everything.
    See how positive I am. How successful I am.
    See my super positive mental attitude.
    See how I dislike negativity in others.
    See what a nice person I am.
    See how I am a woman of God. See the cross around my neck.
    I am in a twelve step recovery program. See how mature, responsible, functional & emotionally healthy I am.
