Breaking free from sex addiction is tough. Many people relapse and struggle to find the freedom from Sexual addiction. We find that one common thread that separates those that make it to sexual sobriety and those that don’t is doing whatever it takes to stay sexual sober.
What does it look like to be in a “Whatever it takes” frame of mind?
- It’s 5:30 pm and the local sexual recovery meeting is at 6:00 pm I’m tired and want to go home but the meeting is more important to me and I arrive 15 minutes early.
- I hate sharing at meetings and don’t want to let people in. But I do because letting people know where I am breaks the isolation of my addiction.
- I don’t want to call my sponsor or get even get a sponsor, but I do this because recovery is more important.
- I really want to keep this a secret and not share it because I am afraid to share it with anyone, but I know holding it back will put me in my addiction. I take the rewarding risk and chose to share it with someone I trust in recovery.
- I don’t want to work the twelve steps of recovery, but I do because my sexual sobriety depends on it.
- Helping others that suffer seems like a chore, but I realize this is what it takes and call someone who needs help.
- I have deep seeded problems that only professional sex addiction therapist can help resolve. I don’t want to seek out help but I do because my sobriety depends on it.
Doing whatever it takes to stay sober during the good and bad times will get and keep you abstinence and healthy in recovery.
