Indy & San Jose Recovery
We admitted we were powerless over addictive sexual behavior - that our lives had become unmanageable.
Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
Humbly asked God to remove our shortcomings.
Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.
Came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
Made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all.
Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood God, praying only for knowledge of God's will for us and the power to carry that out.
Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood God.
Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to other sex addicts and to practice these principles in our lives.
