As individuals in SA, we have seen many miracles. As a worldwide fellowship, SA still carries some heavy responsibility. The SIP committee is organized to address one of these responsibilities head on: sharing our message with various helping professionals and larger institutions. And we, who have personally benefited from the miracles of the 12 Steps can now take part in informing those who help people every day.

When Zoom meetings started I was blessed to attend one or more meetings per day including for the first time a women’s only meeting. I didn’t have much experience attending meetings with other SA sisters. It was beautiful.

As a young girl, I dreamed of becoming a scientist. But life took a sharp turn when instead I became a lust addict. Accepting my struggle wasn’t easy. What I thought was innocent indulgence in pornography and fantasy spun out of control, and I came to feel completely powerless. I stumbled across SA on the Internet, but I was still under age, and I had to wait until I turned 18 to join the Program. And living in India, where we didn’t yet have face-to-face meetings, meant I had to rely solely on online support.

My name is Mike M. and I’m a sexaholic. I’ve been one since before I even understood what lust was. I’ve been sober over two years now thanks to the 12 steps of SA, working with a sponsor, and a Power greater than myself that I try not to understand, but to experience. I’m married to my wife and we have three boys, 17, 14, and 10.

In my Step work I spent quite some time on my negative attitude towards women. There seemed to be very little trust. How could there be when there was no trust in me? I had always been switching from Mr. Know-It-All to Mr. Pitiful. In the one role being blind to the mess I made of my life and to how I hurt others, minors and women included, and if the pressure was too high, I became the victim that needed everybody’s help and understanding.

I came into Sexaholics Anonymous at age 31. I am 55 today. I’ve seen a lot of women come and go. Based on behaviors I’ve experienced during those 25 years, I’d like to share some practical recovery tools how I treat the opposite sex at our mixed meetings:

“What can we do so that more women attend our meetings? What can we do to support women in SA? What can we give women when they come into our meetings? What are we doing wrong that women leave our meetings? How can we encourage more women in service?”

About a year ago, I was asked to invite members to write articles for another ESSAY edition about women in SA. A few months later, talking about it during breakfast at the International Convention in Krakow, Poland, someone suggested that it would be more interesting to make an issue about women and men finding sobriety together. We are all equal in the Fellowship, and we need each other’s fellowship to achieve recovery as the White Book states in its chapter on “Mixed Meetings” (SA 178-179).

The poignant narrative of Arpita on pages 12-14 underscores that we are all fellow travelers on a spiritual journey who struggle with similar challenges. It’s tempting to attribute our discomfort to the opposite sex, but true insight reveals that the root of addiction lies within ourselves.

לפני שנה, התמלאתי פחד כשנכנסתי לראשונה לפגישת זום מעורבת. הייתה לי שאלה- כיצד אשאר מפוכחת בסביבת גברים?
מה שחיזק אותי מההתחלה היה הדרך שבה החברים הוסיפו את תאריכי הנקיות שלהם כשהציגו את עצמם.
אבל לא הייתה לי כל אפשרות אחרת- הייתי חייבת להתגבר על הפחדים ולהמשיך לבוא על מנת ללמוד איך להישאר ולהעמיק את ההחלמה שלי, דבר שכן עשיתי. המשכתי להגיע למפגשים מעורבים בנוסף למפגש פרונטלי לנשים בלבד שבועי.
