Can a person have a sex addiction without having sex?

I have chronic, obsessive sexual thoughts and fantasies.
However, I’ve been celibate for most of my life. Because the times I have had sex effects me very strongly and that’s all I wanted or thought about and nothing else. But these situations have always ended badly.
For years, especially the past year, I have not been able to stop thinking about sex and the fact that I do not have it. It’s not just passing thoughts, it’s all I think about.
