fellowship of recovering sex addicts
During the city-wide closure of public places our Sex Addicts Anonymous Montreal meetings are taking place via the Zoom video conference service.
Call another member whom you know for more details, or call the phone number.
Monday and Wednesday Zoom video meeting 7-to-7:30.
Meeting format: Check-in; Serenity Prayer; Selected Reading; Shares; Gratitudes; Seventh Tradition; Closing.
Women Only. Meetings -- 2020 News soon.
Listen only, or take your turn sharing -- it's your choice. If you do so share, do so from your experience not another's. Keep your language clean. "What goes on in the meeting stays in the meeting." If you have questions, please ask these before, after, but not during the meeting. Our meetings are safe for sharing our experience.
No one but you can tell you whether you belong or not, only if you experience it. For some of us, deciding, getting to, and stepping through the door of the first meeting was a big step.
Not sure if you're a sex addict? Listen. At meetings you may hear about others' struggles, and maybe progress. At Sex Addicts Anonymous meetings are people who have an understanding. Come, listen, speak if you are moved. Come to six (6) meetings to see if this works for you.
Literature is available to learn that way. If you come to a meeting and listen, you will hear a way members share from their experience, strength, and hope.
Before, after, but not during meetings, please feel free to ask any questions of members to help you get acquainted with the fellowship of recovering Sex Addicts Anonymous Montreal.
