Thanks for sharing!
I found incredibly valuable tools in SAA (another 12 step fellowship, same steps) to deal with my unhealthy sexuality and compulsions.
Only later did i make the connection that most of my Sexuality then was rooted in my abuse and other trauma and insecurities growing up - and compounded by years of psychically destructive behavior).
The best thing is that recovery has helped me discover and reclaim a beautiful and powerful sexuality that was inconceivable before. Working the steps with a sponsor Going to meetings, and reading about sexual addictions has broken my isolation, shame and feelings of hopelessness around sex.
Of course, I avoided facing this issue and myself for over a decade, so the price of my dishonesty and resitance was pretty high- but the rewards from finally looking at this stuff are amazing.
