Sexual Attraction in a Recovery Setting

This entry was posted in Daily Inspiration and tagged on

To overcome, one must stay focused on the goal and outcome, not the momentary distractions.

Unsurprisingly, many sex addicts new to recovery find themselves romantically and/or sexually attracted to people in their therapy or 12-step recovery group. This is the addiction fighting back, trying to regain control. It is important for addicts to not act on these feelings. A much better option is to discuss the attraction with someone who is not involved, usually the therapy group facilitator or a 12-step sponsor, though anyone who is actively involved in sexual recovery will do. Eventually, these feelings of attraction pass, and recovering sex addicts are glad that they did not act upon them.

Just for Today:
Be honest with at least one other recovering sex addict about your current sexual attraction(s).
