Recovering sex and porn addicts must attend only two types of twelve-step meetings: the ones they want to go to, and the ones they don’t want to go to.
In twelve-step meetings, we find a safe place to talk about our active addiction, its consequences, and the tribulations of recovery and healing. We can also simply get current, sharing about whatever it is that is affecting our lives—because everything in our lives affects our emotional well-being and is therefore related to sexual sobriety. If we worry that what we share about will not be well received but speak anyway, we tend to find others nodding their heads in agreement with what we’re saying, identifying with the feelings if not the actual circumstances, and most certainly not passing judgment.
Just for Today
Forget about the venue and focus on the message of recovery.
