Welcome to Sexaholics Anonymous (SA) of Nebraska
We're glad you're here. We are a fellowship of men and women who share our experience, strength and hope to help each other gain and maintain sexual sobrity. For us, sexual sobrity means no sex with one's self or with anyone other than our spouse and that true sobriety includes progressive victory over lust.
If you would like more information about SA in Nebraska, please call our toll free number at 877-889-8071, or see the Contact Us page.
We won't pronounce anyone as a sexaholic. It's up to you to diagnose for yourself. Try some controlled lusting. Try setting boundaries on your sexaul acting out. Try limiting your sex partners or the frequency of your activity. Try it more than once. If you find you want to stop and can't, you may be a sexaholic. Lust has become an addiction. Our situation is like that of the alcoholic who can no longer tolerate alcohol and must stop drinking altogether. So it is with the sexaholic, or sex drunk, who can no longer tolerate lust but cannot stop.
But there is hope. We have found that we are powerless over lust, and we have found sobrity in this daily program of spiritual recovery. By working the Twelve Steps of recovery, we have been able to stay sexually sober for years, one day at a time.
If you want what we have, we are here to help. There are around 20 meetings a week across the state of Nebraska and three of those are phone meetings for anyone who aren't located close to a physical meeting.
Here's what you'll find on this web site:
- If you're a newcomer trying to decide if SA is a resource for you, you'll find explanations of the program in the newcomer section.
- If you are a woman facing problems with sexual acting out, you'll find specific information for you here.
- If you're a newcomer or a member perhaps from another part of the country and you're looking for meetings across Nebraska, you'll find a listing on the meetings page.
- Beyond local meetings, events include regional and national retreats and conventions as well as opportunities to serve through SA Nebraska Intergroup meetings.
- Between meetings, many of us find that audio programs can help our recovery. In this section you'll find audio recordings of local speaker meetings and retreats.
- Links includes connections to our national office and other programs.
- If you're an inmate who may be struggling with sexual addiction, you can find out about our program of support for you here.
- Finally, for more individualized information, contact us.
- 2016 RETREAT This year's Nebraska and regional Retreat will be held Saturday, August 27, 2016, at Mahoney State Park (between Lincoln and Omaha). This year's speaker is Bill S. from Nashville, a long-time and active member of the fellowship. You can download a flier and registration for here.
If you are here because of your concern for the behavior of a loved one or friend, you may need a support program of your own. S-Anon is a program of recovery for those who have been affected by someone else's sexual behavior, and can be a great resource that we suggest you look into. It is to help you deal with your feelings and experiences and help you take care of yourself whether or not the addict in your life seeks his or her own recovery. The list of questions found here on S-Anon's website can help you decide if S-Anon is for you.
What is Sexaholics Anonymous?*
Sexaholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength, and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop lusting and become sexually sober. There are no dues or fees for SA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. SA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization, or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sexually sober and help others to achieve sexual sobriety.
Sexaholics Anonymous is a recovery program based on the principles of Alcoholics Anonymous and received permission from AA to use its Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions in 1979.
