Decisions are easy when you know what you value.

Not every sexual recovery meeting is the same. Yes, most meetings are based on the same basic literature and follow the same basic format. 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 crosstalk (feedback between members) while others strongly discourage it. Some meetings read and discuss the 12 steps or specific literature; other meetings encourage people to talk about whatever is on their mind. Knowing this, sex and porn 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.

Task for Today
