Our stories disclose in a general way what we used to be like, what happened, and what we are like now. Step 3: Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood God.
If you have decided you want what we have and are willing to go to any length to get it -- then you are ready to take certain steps. Step 4: Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
Step 5: Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
Step 6: Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
"An SAA group consists of two or more individuals who, using the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of SAA, meet regularly for the purpose of recovering from their addictive sexual behavior.
At our meetings, we read SAA literature and share our experience, strength and hope with each other, focusing on how the SAA program of recovery works in our lives." For many of us, our first experience in SAA was attending a meeting.
Sex Addicts Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other so that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from sexual addiction and dependency. While we all strive for sexual sobriety, its achievement is not a requirement for attendance or participation. Remember that we deal with sexual addiction -- cunning, baffling, powerful! But there is a Higher Power, one who can help if you turn your problems over to His care. Step 2: Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
I encourage anyone who has information about additional online and telephone support forums to contact me so that I can include them here.
Remember, addiction and despair breed in isolation, while recovery and hope thrive in connection.
We knew very little about the SAA fellowship or the program of recovery it teaches.
At that first meeting, we began to feel like we were no longer alone in our fight against our addiction.
