New York, February 20 (ANI): Experts have cast a shadow of doubt over hopes that Tiger Woods' treatment for sex addiction would bear long-lasting results and save his marriage to wife Elin Nordegren.

Leslie Seppinni, Ph. D., warned against the long, painful struggle that lay before addicts in overcoming their habits, adding relapses were a common occurrence.

"There is a high percentage of people who relapse. Every once in a while, the addiction rears its ugly head again. People expect some relapse," the New York Daily News quoted Seppinni as saying.

Danine Manette, author of "Ultimate Betrayal: Recognizing, Uncovering and Dealing with Infidelity", argued the ace golfer was not a sex addict.

She said: "Tiger Woods is no different from Alex Rodriguez, Tom Brady or any other professional rich man who surrounds himself with unlimited women. It's horrible because he's married and is now violating the commitment that he made to his wife. But it's not sex addiction."

Manette added: "But people like Tiger Woods go into treatment because they believe that if they show they are working on something, people will be willing to reinvest in them. The reality is that Tiger has no self control." (ANI)
