A sponsor is someone who knows all about you and still wants to help you.
Sponsors provide guidance and much-needed support to recovering sex and porn addicts as they experience withdrawal, work the 12 steps of sexual recovery, and deal with being triggered toward addictive sexual behaviors. The sponsee’s job is to be honest, open-minded, and willing to both ask for and accept advice from the sponsor. Any time a recovering sex or porn addict feels triggered to act out, the addict should contact his or her sponsor. Sometimes, the mere act of picking up the phone to ask for help alleviates the desire to act out.
Task for Today
If you don’t yet have a 12-step sexual recovery sponsor, get one.
