Your Sexual Sobriety Plan: The Process of Revision

The times they are a-changin’.

With each new form of technology (digital technology in particular), the sexual and romantic landscape changes. As recovering sex and porn addicts, we must do the same, revising our sexual sobriety plans as needed to reflect new temptations and potential problems. That said, we should never change our sobriety plan without significant discussion and input from our therapist, our 12-step sponsor, and other members of our recovery support network. If we change our sobriety plan without this input, we are usually doing so as a way to justify addictive behavior, not as a way to stay sober.

Task for Today
Examine your sexual sobriety plan to see if any changes are needed. If you think changes are needed, talk to your therapist, your sponsor, and others before implementing those changes.
