Why going to a meeting would help.

“Meetings are places where we can drop our emotional defenses and get honest in a way we are rarely able to experience outside of the fellowship. SAA is one of the very few places where we can talk candidly about our sexual behavior without fear of judgment or ridicule. Once we break our self-imposed silence, we are able to be more honest and to form stronger bonds with the members of our group. It is these bonds that enrich our recovery process. In time, we learn to trust our fellow members and to receive their trust in us.” (Sex Addicts Anonymous)
