Sex addict saved by a book

Who can resist an article that says "Diary of a Sex Addict"? :)

But I'm sharing this because of what it said on Page 2:
After years of risky rendezvous, Rosanne felt overwhelmingly sad and heartbroken about her all-consuming behavior. At the age of 36, she'd hit rock bottom. But a fortuitous trip to the library would change all that. While walking down an aisle of bookshelves, she spotted a book called Don't Call It Love: Recovery from Sexual Addiction by Patrick Carnes. Curious, Rosanne flipped through the book and instantly recognized herself in it. She checked out the book and devoured it immediately.
An instance of how a trip to a library became a life changing moment. How many more lives have been positively affected by libraries, I wonder?

The NLB doesn't have that particular title "Don't call it love", but there are related books. Try "sexual addiction" as a keyword search. You'd get titles like the following:
