More and more individuals believe: They are spiritual without ever going to church.
Is it possible to not practice a religion and have spirituality and still be a sex addict?
Yes! Many people discover God in music, art, nature, poetry, or other creations. However, it is possible to be both spiritual and religious. Regardless of church or no church, people can choose purposeful living. Also, being a sex addict does not prevent a person from being spiritual.
- Being spiritual, a sex addict steps into freedom when she surrenders her will. For example, she may go to a 12 Step program (i.e., SAA meetings) and/or see a therapist for recovery.
- Sharing with others, an individual is spiritual when she discloses her experience, strength, and hope throughout the recovery process.
- A Sex Addict who gains productive behaviors through positive attitudes about self and others removes excessive negativity. This person has surrendered to the spiritual realm of living.
“Today, my spirituality is fed by my support meetings” (Booth, 2009, p. 370).
