Sex Addiction 101: The Workbook presents 24 updated and highly refined exercises specifically designed to guide recovering sex addicts through the process of healing. It is intended for use in conjunction with Rob Weiss's deeply informative full-length book, Sex Addiction 101: A Basic Guide to Healing from Sex, Love, and Porn Addiction. That more traditional book gives in-depth information about the nature, causes, and treatment of sexual addiction. Meanwhile, this workbook delivers concrete tasks and reflective questions designed to help recovering sex addicts establish and maintain sexual sobriety, and to live a more serene and fulfilling life.
For simplicity and clarity, the exercises in this workbook are divided into five basic sections, each designed to walk recovering sex addicts through a different phase of healing.
. Section one gets readers started on the pathway to recovery, helping them develop a personalized definition of and plan for sexual sobriety.
. Section two helps sex addicts better understand the various facets and nuances of their addiction.
. Section three focuses on relapse prevention, in particular the development of coping skills that can help recovering sex addicts stay sober no matter what.
. Section four starts readers on the "next step" of healing by identifying and addressing the underlying issues that drive their addictive behavior.
. Section five addresses life in sobriety, including dating and developing a happier, more well-rounded life.
