Sexual feelings aren't wrong. They are feelings, urges, desires. The choices I make regarding what to do with them can be positive or negative.
It is just a difficult place I'm in. I crave for sex and romance so much. And I can't act on those cravings. Every time I interact with someone who is attractive and nice it will keep haunting me. Even after four months sober it isn't getting any better and it makes me frustrated and self-pitying. If those sexual feelings would just vanish I would be much better off.
