Literature

Sexual recovery is a portable program: we can make use of AA or any relevant recovery books and literature, plus our own books and pamphlets.

Read some recovery literature every day. Daily reading helps keep your focus on recovery. If you get one good new idea from a whole book, it was worth it. Become more knowledgeable about you addiction by any reading relevant books and visiting informational websites. It can tide you over till you’re able to make contact with another member. It also deepens your knowledge of the program, and no matter how often you read it, There’s always something surprising to learn.

All the information you need for a complete recovery from sex and love addiction is in our Basic Text, Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous. We strongly recommends all members read the Basic Text of SLAA, especially Chapters: 4, 5 and 6. These chapters explain, respectively, our twelve step program of recovery, the withdrawal experience, and building partnerships. Additionally we encourage you to read the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous, especially Chapters 5, 6 and 7. These chapters further describe how the program works, how to get into action, and how to maintain your new found emotional sobriety. Lastly, we suggest you read 12 Steps and 12 Traditions, colloquially referred to as the Twelve and Twelve. It further explains how a 12 step program works and how a 12 step group operates. Many members have found other books vital to their own recovery; we suggest you inquire of members of the group what has helped them to achieve and maintain sobriety. Available from the Fellowship Wide Services are numerous pamphlets and brochures.

Should you wish to do some service, there is always need for help on the Conference Literature Committee. This committee performs the work of bringing literature to the Annual Business Meeting for approval of the Conference. Your Group representative from the Intergroup helps make the decision to bring new literature into the Fellowship.
