Katandra was brave to discuss sexual addiction, of which many would shy from and hide. This was not your average 12 step book to recovery from sexual addiction. Through the authors experience, she dug to the root of so many addictions. For one to be introduced to this adult act of sex by one's father, was in itself perverse. It would warp a little girls idea of what love is and should be. This book uncovers the seeking of love through sex. It opens one's strongly held ideals of what love and what sex is and how we relate to it all.
We are not one on an island by ourselves. We are a vessel that is to be filled with God's Spirit. Filling it with the thrust of man's flesh will eventually leave us empty.
One cannot hide what needs to be released. One cannot dig themselves out of a hole by themselves and must reach out to something greater than themselves.
I highly recommend this book as it is the beginning of removing the bandage off the old rancid sore....of sexual addiction
I give big props to the Author for laying it all out about her sexual addiction and how it came about. Being able to talk about molestation is huge on her part. I am proud of her for sharing a dirty secret as such.
This is a good read. It's a different type of 12 step for sexual sobriety. But, she got through her sobriety and maybe it can help someone else realize that they too can over come sex addiction and move on to greater things in their life as well.
Katandra shared her story with grace. That's the most impactful part of Carnal Sobriety. It wasn't about the details of her dirty little secrets, but it was about how she dealt with the aftermath of her dirty secrets. She was brutally honest about how she "Coped" with her urges and that's all the dirty deeds we needed. Ultimately, she shared how one can transfer their energy into a positive direction, have control of their situation and over come obstacles in life.
