Only the individual can tell if he or she is physically, mentally, or emotionally addicted to sex and/or love. Going to several meetings will allow you to tell if you can identify with other sex and love addicts.
We have found that obsessive/compulsive patterns exist in which relationships or sexual activities have become increasingly destructive to career, family and our sense of self-respect. Sex and love addiction leads to ever worsening consequences if it continues unchecked.
In S.L.A.A. we learn to accept the reality of having this addiction and surrender any notion that we can control it successfully on the basis of our unaided will. Admitting personal powerlessness over this affliction, we cease our addictive behavior and turn to guidance from a Power greater than ourselves, make restitution for harm done to others, and reconstruct our lives physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally.
