Confessions of a sex addict: I've lost everything that's dear to me
The New Paper

"I knew that was the end of my marriage," Ms Chew whispers.
"Two weeks later, I had an abortion and sent an e-mail with the medical record to my husband. The subject line read, 'Hope this makes you happy'."
He filed for divorce.
In a separate interview, he tells The New Paper on Sunday: "It was a marriage that should never have taken place. I hate her to the core.
"I'd never know for sure now if the baby was really mine - that's how much she has hurt me. I have to live with this guilt that I could have caused the death of my own child."
He says: "When I was told that she was fired (from her job), I had mixed feelings. But I also prayed that she'd wake up and realise she needs help badly.
"I don't want to have anything to do with her."
Ms Chew is aware of her ex-husband's bitterness. "I'm so sorry that I hurt him so badly," she says.
Ms Ong reckons that after two years of counselling, Ms Chew's condition has improved. She says: "But every time something goes wrong in her life, she'd suffer a relapse and that's when her urges return and she feels a need for empowerment.
"It would take time, but she's doing fine."
Ms Chew adds: "I don't know what to expect or how long it will take. But I'm also learning how not to use sex as a tool, whether it's for comfort or to vent my unhappiness.
"Until I enjoy sex for just what it is, I guess I can't say I've fully recovered."
