Recovery for Love Addicts
newcomer to LAA recently sent us the following question: “Alcoholics
don’t drink. OA's have a food plan. DA's have a financial
plan. What about LAA's? Are we just on our own to figure out what
recovery means to us?
LAA may be a new fellowship, but we are not alone. We are going
to figure out as a group what recovery is for us. In the meantime,
here are some basic guidelines for newcomers.
recover, love addicts must change how they think and behave.
Consider the following advice.
Honestly admit that you are a love addict.
Get help whether it be online or at a meeting.
Get a sponsor or pair up with another recovering love addict (same
gender as you).
Start working the steps. Until LAA writes their own textbook you
can use the book Co-Dependents
Begin to "trudge road of happy destiny." (From the book
of Alcoholics Anonymous, page 164)
