Author's Triumph Over Sex Addiction Helps Many Others Heal

New memoir reveals one man's struggle and ultimate triumph over an addiction that had plagued celebrities like Tiger Woods, Kobe Bryant and Jesse James.
    STAUNTON, VA, January 18, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Celebrities like Tiger Woods, Kobe Bryant, George Michael, Ted Haggard, and Jesse James. What do they all allegedly have in common? They each had an addiction that almost ruined their lives and the lives of the people around them. While the media revealed the above-mentioned individuals' sexual indiscretions for the whole world to see, they stopped short of analyzing the root of this addiction. Too often we don't hear the documented progress these men have made in picking up the pieces of their broken lives. Although it might be beneficial to see the progress, recovery doesn't make great headlines. So readers are left to make assumptions without all the relevant pieces to this most complex sex addiction puzzle.

In "Sex and Surrender: An Addict's Journey", A.D. Burk's offers insight and understanding in such a way that his readers might recognize themselves in his story. "My struggle—my triumphs, my setbacks, step-by-painstaking-step—is instructive. Anyone can fail, as I did, anyone can rise, as I did. Anyone can reach out for help, as I did. And, most important, anyone will discover, as I did, that there is hope, if you are willing to ask for help and know where to look."

"Sex & Surrender" graphically recounts the author's addictive cycle which lasted roughly 12 years and almost ended his life. Through a dream Burks realized he had to find a way out. Therapy and spiritual counseling gave him a temporary respite and inspired him to devise a four-step process to manage his addiction. Yet Burk's true breakthrough came when the root of his pain was uncovered and he realized that sex does not equal love.

A.D. Burks is a native Texan and Renaissance man. He sang with the Grinnell Singers at Carnegie Hall, took a Bachelors degree in Chemistry and an MBA from Rice University. Through Sex & Surrender, Burks returns to what he considers his calling -- to use his life lessons to inspire creativity and spiritual growth.
