Decisions are easy when you know what you value.
Not every 12-step sexual recovery meeting is the same. Yes, most meetings tend to follow the same basic format, based on the same basic literature. But some meetings are either mostly or entirely attended by men (or women). Some meetings are speaker meetings, where only one person talks, while others are discussion meetings, where anyone can share. Some meetings allow cross-talk (feedback between members during the meeting), while others strongly discourage it. Some meetings read and discuss the steps or specific literature, whereas other meetings encourage people to talk about whatever it is that’s on their mind. Knowing this, sex addicts new to recovery should attend a variety of meetings to see which ones work best for them, keeping in mind the fact that their needs may change over time.

I will attend an unfamiliar meeting, just to see if I like it.
