Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous of Ontario Meeting List

What can change?

This program is about personal change. If our lives were manageable while we were acting-out sexually or in relationships, we wouldn't want or need change. We come to SLAA in the hope, sometimes the desperation, that things can change. We might not know what healthy lives feel like, but we want them.


The Promises of SLAA

"Now we were truly feeling some sense of deep release from the past! We were free of much guilt for our misdeeds, from the shame of having fallen short of our inner values. In many instances, values we had thought were ours had turned out to be someone else's. We had shed or changed these to allow the seeds of our own personal wholeness to take root and grow. We were indeed living new, positive, unfolding lives. Whether in partnership with others or in solitude, we had truly been granted a spiritual release from our sex and love addiction. While vigilance was still important, the choices we had to make now seemed easier. We felt increasing confidence in our developing relationship with God, and were full participants in the fellowship of SLAA. We enjoyed solitude and were unafraid of honesty and openness with others. We could comprehend what it means to have dignity of self."
