I was blessed with the opportunity to join the SA Fellowship of the Spirit more than eight years ago. When I then joined my first meeting, my sole motive was breaking free from the prison of lust, in the shade of which I had been living since my early teenage years. Over time, I discovered that by following the Twelve Steps, I gradually receive more valuable gifts of recovery, which occur to be things that I had no intention of receiving in the first place, which were to some extent incomprehensible from my former perspective. One of these gifts has to do with emotional sobriety.
