As you think about recovery from an addiction,
You become really interested in life.
January, 2015, I will celebrate one year of attending Sex Addicts Anonymous (SAA) meetings.
As a result, I have experienced the best year of my life and of my marriage.
I have stopped the objectification of my wife; now, I feel a gratitude for the spiritual strength she demonstrates.
In five days, we will be married 41 years. I can thank God for guiding us to this point in our lives. Our marriage grows stronger, every day.
I now have hope.
With the help of others, I can say yes to recovery.
The “Say Yes to Life” principle: “If we choose, we may overcome most of the challenges that face us” (Booth, 2009, p. 3).
Five Benefits of AA & SAA meetings (any Recovery Meetings)
- Many people recover from alcohol and sex addiction one day at a time
- Families of alcoholics and sex addicts are coming together
- Relationships heal with understanding
- People are picking up broken pieces
- Healing happens for the helper and the helped.
This Year, I Will Continue to Say Yes to My SAA Meetings.
It is the foundation to my recovery.
