Recovering sex and porn addicts must attend only two types of 12-Step meetings: the ones they want to go to, and the ones they don’t want to go to.
In 12-Step meetings, recovering sex and porn addicts find a safe place to talk about their active addiction, its consequences, and the tribulations of recovery and healing. They can also simply get current, sharing about whatever it is that is affecting their lives – because everything in a recovering sex or porn addict’s life affects his or her emotional wellbeing and is therefore related to sexual sobriety. Generally, sex and porn addicts who worry that what they share about will not be well received find others nodding their heads in agreement with what they’re saying, identifying with the feelings if not the actual circumstances, and most certainly not passing judgment.
