Recovery was possible for most of us only when we accepted the fact that we were powerless over our addictive sexual behavior and that we were incapable of changing without help from outside ourselves. Many of us came to this realization when we started attending SAA meetings. In that setting we heard stories similar to ours and realized that recovery from our malady was possible. We learned through the SAA Fellowship that we were not hopelessly defective.
We discovered that, when we began applying the Twelve Steps conscientiously in our lives, we could abstain both from obsessive mental preoccupation with sex and compulsive sexual behavior. We found faith and courage to change our way of thinking and acting. We began accepting daily problems as stepping stones to spiritual growth. As we continued working the Twelve Step Program, we experienced the return of personal integrity and found a new sense of purpose in our lives. We discovered the joy of freedom from addiction.
