The Fiftieth Anniversary Edition of the S. L. A. A. Basic Text
WHAT’S YOUR STORY?
Do you have an S.L.A.A. story of experience, strength, and hope?
WOULD YOU LIKE TO HELP OTHERS BY SHARING YOUR STORY?
The fellowship is preparing a special 50th-anniversary edition of our
Basic Text, Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous.
We are seeking new stories of recovery for this new edition.
WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
Personal stories with diversity in such areas as gender identity, sexual preference, religion, ethnicity, nationality, length of sober time, age, and the like.
Personal stories that describe various manifestations of sex and love addiction, such as anorexia, fantasy, romantic obsession, sex and technology, and so on.
Personal stories that share experience, strength, and hope in different areas of sober living, such as sober dating, healthy relationships, reconciliation with a spouse or partner, and living single.
NOT SURE WHAT TO SHARE?
Tell us what your life was like before, what happened, and what it is like now.
Tell us how you worked the program, perhaps focusing on one or all of our Preamble’s Five Major Recovery Resources: Sobriety, Sponsorship and Meetings, Service, Steps, and Spirituality.
Tell us how you stay active in long-term sobriety.
Tell us what you’ve learned about yourself, dealing with others, and spiritual principles.
Tell us the basic facts such as your gender, age, ethnicity and nationality, religion or spiritual background, sexual preference, time in S.L.A.A., bottom lines, relationship with a sponsor, time sober in S.L.A.A., experience with relapse and slips, membership in other 12-Step programs, or anything else that impacts your story.
