Sexaholics Anonymous (SA) is a fellowship of men and women who desire to stop lusting and to become sexually sober, and a recovery program based on the principles of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) adopted on primary purpose to stay sexually sober and help others to achieve sexual sobriety. Sexaholics Anonymous received permission from AA to use its Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions in 1979.
Sexaholics Anonymous does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes. In defining sobriety, SA only speaks for its members; for the married sexaholic, sexual sobriety means having no form of sex with self or with persons other than the spouse. In SA’s sobriety definition, the term “spouse” refers to one’s partner in a marriage between a man and a woman. For the unmarried sexaholic, sexual sobriety means freedom from sex of any kind. And for all of us, single and married alike, sexual sobriety also includes progressive victory over lust (Sexaholics Anonymous, 191-192).
