In recovery, the road narrows, but the horizon widens.
In sexual recovery, the definition of and boundaries for sexual sobriety are determined based on each addict’s unique history and goals. This means that sexual sobriety looks different for every recovering addict. What is prohibited for one person may be perfectly acceptable for another. Masturbation is a typical example of a behavior that is OK for some but problematic for others. Regardless of what an addict’s sexual recovery plan looks like, if that addict’s sexual behaviors conform to the well-defined boundaries of his or her plan, that addict is sexually sober.
Just for Today
Don’t judge yourself based on the sexual sobriety plans of others. And don’t judge them based on your definition of sexual sobriety.
