Our Basic Text
The basic text of our fellowship is titled: Sexaholics Anonymous. It is often referred to as the “White Book,” since the front and back cover are solid white in an attempt to preserve the reader’s privacy. This includes an excellent overview of sexaholism, practical methods of working the 12 steps and much more. For many of us, reading this book Readings gave us a clear insight into both the nature of the disease and the nature of the solution. It became clear that the power of this illness was far too much for us to overcome on our own and we needed a fellowship (SA), a practical approach to recovery, and a Higher Power to help us.
