I Was Addicted To Sex For 18 Years – Woman Narrates Her Ordeal

A woman identified as Laurie Jade Woodruff has narrated how she turned celibate after an 18 years addiction to sex.
“I even had bad pains down there,” she says. “It was weird and horrible. “But I had to force myself to become celibate because I was fixated on sex for too long. My life revolved around it. My addiction meant I was jumping from one damaging relationship to another and always felt needy.
“When I had my beautiful, perfect baby son in my arms and found myself texting men, I knew it was time to break the cycle. So I became celibate.”
Laurie, 30, from Chesterfield, lost her virginity frighteningly early and says she became “very sexually active” from then on.
“I know it was wrong so become sexually active so young. And even then, I was hanging around arcades in mixed groups and was often approached by boys. I had a real problem saying no.
“I didn’t realize it then, but I was constantly searching for a connection – that intimate moment of being loved, appreciated and wanted. It took me years to realize I was going about it all the wrong way.”
Jade’s sex addiction even influenced her career choices. With ambitions to be a writer, she ditched her first job on a magazine to become a glamour model and lap dancer.
“Looking back, I craved the attention and the immediate feedback. I met many men through those jobs. But I always seemed to be attracted to the wrong kind of man – often ones who were very dominant.
“And I spent a lot of time yo-yoing from the high of a new relationship to the low of being unhappy because I was being treated badly. “Up until my late 20s, I didn’t realize I had a problem. Because I always felt I was having fun. Like all addictions, it felt great at first.
“But I was experiencing short term highs and much longer lows. Having sex felt like a fix – and I wanted more and more. “One night I went to a sex party where loads of people were doing lots of wild things – doing everything with everyone. That night I had maybe six different partners.
“I was overtly sexual but not in a healthy way. I can’t say how many men and women I slept with in total over the years because I didn’t keep a tally. But it’s possibly around 200.”
Tragedy made Laurie’s addiction worse. Her son Arthur was born on 6 January 2015 but died on 27 February that year from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.
Laurie settled in a new relationship for a while and had another son, Henry, who is now two. But the same problems of constantly craving sex and attention ended their relationship.
Laurie tried to find the help she needed, eventually filling in questionnaires from Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous and attending group therapy meetings.
Laurie’s celibate period lasted four months but ended for a happy reason: she is dating someone kind.
“My sex addiction is still at the back of my mind and maybe always will be, but I’m much more on top of things now.”
