AFTER much progress made so far from (if you exclude the relapses). Like losing weight, getting fitter, healthier and on the process to getting a leaner and ripped body. But also moving out into my own place. Picking up hobbies and doing activities I used to love doing in the past. But also concentrating and working on other life goals. In my recent series of relapses, it's really dawned on me that journalling and a support group on WhatsApp - a very good one at that - is just not enough for me. I feel that I need to reach out and speak to someone (or a small group) in person and face to face. To put this plainly, I can't do this alone. This is where it occurred to me to go on a 12 Steps programme. As I need to open up and reach out to people. Where I can be around like-minded people who are suffering a porn/sex addiction like myself. Let go of the guilt, the shame, and the pain from this. Where I can be free and relieve myself from this. Allow myself to be vulnerable and have it out in the open. As I'm far too ashamed or embarrassed to share my problem with my nearest and dearest. Out of fear from not being understood or taken seriously. I feel that this is one of the ways I can make further progress on my recovery. What do you make of it? Has anyone been or going to a 12 Steps programme help them on their recovery?
