No, that's why wayward spouses like alcoholics have to accept responsibility for their actions. The fog is not an excuse but it is an explanation. Did you know that recent scientific studies are linking certain genes to dopaimine receptors in the brain to try to explain why some people will cheat while others seems to be able to keep up their boundaries? Why would they be studying this if there was no previous validation of a dopamine fog? I can provide you links if you'd like.
