Attended my first SAA meeting yesterday. I was a nervous wreck, but the others there were very welcoming and supportive. Wasn't sure what to expect, but they all just seemed like regular people (which is more than I can say about me...LOL). I was provided some literature, which I haven't read yet, and a "1 day chip" representing my commitment to at least one day of sobriety from my sexually addictive behaviors (and it has the Serenity Prayer on the back). Anyway, lots to read and I plan to return to the next meeting next Sunday. Hoping I can get myself under control and keep my wife and family.


Peace,

John

John,

Congrats: SAA saved my life and helped me find a healthy sexuality that was long missing.

The men in SAA gave me the courage to face these issues, to examine them openly and honestly, and to piece through the wreckage of my sexual behavior to discern authentic intimacy and connection.
