  • Daniel : whats your name
  • guest_3827 : A question to Keith that was
  • guest_3827 : Yes, and in general in relation to true love and connection between two people, especially between men and women, who are so used to objectify the other gender
  • guest_3827 : Yrs. And in general dating people
  • Daniel : yes ben... acceptance will help you with that though 🙂
  • Daniel : theres many fellowship for non addicts in recovery
  • Ben : was the question about any length answered? i had to step off the talk for a phone call
  • Daniel : do you mean someone in recovery and someone not in recovery?
  • Daniel : non sexaholics can be in recovery though
  • guest_3827 : Keith do you believe in a loving union between a sexholic and a non sexaholic? It seems to me that unless the two people are connected to hp they would struggle to connect
  • Daniel : yes we hope to share the recordings
  • Daniel : we tried very hard to make it many more women
  • Daniel : 7 out of 24 was a big ratio compared to the actual fellowship
  • guest_3827 : I'm a woman.
  • guest_3827 : Thanks Daniel on answering about the few women speakers.. I guess "many" reflects the low ratio of women comparing to men in general in SA. In my timezone I didn't catch a woman speaker hence my question. I would appreciate if you give us info on where I can listen to the recordings.. Thumbs up for your hard work of running the SIM
  • Josip : Hi Keith, good to here you. Thanks for sharing.
  • Ben : hi, my question is: chapter 5 in the big book mentions the need to go to any lengths. what does any length mean for you?
  • guest_5720 : Hi Keith good to hear you, thanks for all your service Don O

  • Ben : to keep SA safe for all members

  • Ben : How do we prevent male and female members from acting out , whilst meeting at a mixed meeting?
  • Daniel : any more questions?
  • Dominik R : Thank you so much Birgit. Thanks for your honesty. Great share. My question: Can you say again the prayers you send to God during the day. They are easy and amazing.

  • Sergey Almaty : Thank you LA for your service and heart. I wish I had heard you more.
  • Daniel : hey!

  • brian s : thanks friend of roy uncondtional love of God
  • guest_7326 : Discovering the Principles is a great resource in calling us to deeper growth as a fellowship of SA and embodying the principles and traditions in unity, through recovery and loving service for and with each other.
  • Mitch : Nice! Thanks LA!
  • guest_7326 : How did the Steps help you grow in this spiritual awakening?
  • guest_7326 : What an encounter and experience of God's love! Even in the midst of the progression of your sexaholism...a time to come to awareness and quiet realization of your powerlessness with lust and reclaim what God always offered you, to go to any lengths...you gave your all and gave your whole self to God in the Fellowship and grew in union with fellowship through loving service. An encounter with a Radical Love that called you to be radical in God's love, putting everything on the table and God prov
  • Kristina Germany : Thank you LA

  • Luckyjoy : Thanks Dennis you're doing a wonderful job. Thanks everyone!
  • guest 9696 : greetings hello
  • guest 666 : hello
  • guest_7326 : Hitting the bottom helped you realize you had to find a way out. Realization of how deep the pain in betraying your wife and any other forms of lust and acting out increasing the pain 10x fold. Couldn't fill the void and then reaching out for help and HP provides a person to direct you to SA. What a grace! From self will gone riot to the willingness to go to any lengths to stop lusting and become sexually sober. What a Spiritual Awakening of the Power of HP in experience of your powerlessness. G
  • suzanne : Im here!
  • guest_7326 : How did you work with your sponsor when working the Steps?
  • Dennis T : any questions for Farzad
  • guest_7326 : I appreciate this experience of working the Steps in a simple, clear, concrete way in relation to sponsor and fellowship and all relationships and great witness that the Program works when you work it. Frank S. SoCal
  • Dennis T : One of the best descriptions I have heard on the steps, this is fantastic
  • Dennis T : Mona had difficulties getting on the line so Farzad was the back up sorry
  • Jimmy : I jumped on the video late but thought this was with Mona (maybe a female?) on “Life Before and Living in Recovery Now”. Will you clarify the speaker and if this is the right topic?
  • Dennis T : Farzad
  • Dennis T : questions for Faezad
  • Mitch : Hey Jason! Thanks for your wonderful support!
  • Mitch : Yes, I agree with Roy. Whenever i'm tempted to lust, I need to surrender to my higher power as soon as possible. The faster I surrender the more comfortable I am.
  • Dennis T : Sorry we missed this, I love that
  • guest_4229 : Roy K says greatest "sin" is not bringing your HP into your temptations and trying o do in own power. Do you agreee?
  • guest_4229 : Can you point to specific examples that help you trust your HP's seeing you thru the weak moments?
  • Dennis T : You mentioned self examination, can you talk more about that and what that looks like?
  • Jason c : No questions

  • Daniel : Questions here for Mitch please guys
  • guest_7237 : Thank you Neil for your ESH and everyone for service!
  • Dennis T : almost all my sponsees are in therapy, what my therapist gives me i cannot get in SA and what SA gives me, my therapist cant give me.
  • guest_7279 : Thank you!
  • guest_7279 : Or put in another way, would you sponsor a person in therapy?
  • guest_7279 : *did not feel comfortable
  • guest_7279 : What is your attitude towards therapy? My sponsor did not feel uncomfortable sponsoring me while I was going to therapy and that has been discouraging 🙁
  • guest_1122 : I have gone days where I was about to throw in the towel SA altogether but the fact that I had my daily renewal partner and I had to commit to the next 24 hours kept me coming back
  • Dennis T : please ask the question
  • guest_5481 : could you please ask the question from guest 5481 paraphrase if necessary i.e remove the reference to Harvey
  • guest_7279 : Thanks for answering. This helps me to be more broad with my shares snd program
  • Dennis T : questions kep them coming
  • guest_7279 : What does it mean when they ask "have you done anything in the last 24 hours that you are ashamed of"? What do you include in that shame?
  • guest_7237 : My question is how do you know if you really have a healthy attraction to someone or if it is lust?
  • guest_5481 : Please comment on the following from an ESSAY article written by Harvey, "Those people who wonder why the repeatedly relapse might consider that they have never really gotten sober. Yes, they stopped masturbating to orgasm BUT nothing else change. Some continued stimulating themselves but not to orgasm. Others continued watching internet pornography and others live in sexual fantasy while letting themselves become aroused. If this is not “sex with self” then what do we call it?" So to me thi
  • guest_5481 : For me watching porn, or viewing nonporn material pornographically is for me acting out see following excerpt from Essay by Harvey
  • volvi a : i want to ask my wife witch is in sanon wont that if i act out to tell hear but i do not want to tell her what is the right thing to do?

  • Dennis T : you can text me your number if you feel safe and i can send it to her 907-885-5378 Dennis T in Alaska
  • Deviana Cres : Thank you!
  • guest_8168 : Blessings of surrender today friends!
  • Tzvi S : hey SZ!
  • Solomon Z from NYC : Wow, thanks for sharing that about men's attire
  • volvi a : can i have the number from the speaker?
  • volvi a : can i have the number from richards?
  • Deviana Cres : How about the side of the woman... I mean what should she prepare for (or is there she should prepare for) knowing that she'll be attending a male-dominated meeting?
  • volvi a : after making the steps one time its good to do it another time with a oder sponser?
  • guest_9333 : Women in meetings is probably the same thing for gay guys in the meetings.
  • guest_9333 : Can you describe some of what you noticed when you Spiritually Awakened? IE - what is being awake mean to you?
  • guest_9333 : Thanks for your talk Susie
  • guest_1139 : Do you encourage international sponsees who have a local meetings with more men to attend local meetings. How can men make the meetings more comfortable for women to attend?

  • guest_9333 : Hi Tzvi! Jeff from Chicago here1
  • Tzvi S : sorry quest_2584 we were out of time
  • guest_2584 : My sponsee relapses, what do I say? " you can stubble over this or use it as a step ing stone to move up. Your choice"
  • guest_415 : Good point, thanks for sharing that outlook guest-8197
  • guest_8197 : Just a comment. If I had to get a year of sobriety before sponsoring someone I don't think I would have made it my first year. Having the responsibility of a sponsee and having to meet with that sponcee and share with him the same hope and Recovery that I had been given is what kept me sober that first year.
  • Deviana Cres : Hi! I have another question! What is the difference in purposes/objectives/activities of the sponsor and the accountability partner? Sometimes I get them mixed up. Hehehe.
  • guest_415 : How long should you be sober to become a sponsor??
  • Deviana Cres : Thank you so much! 🙂
  • Anon : Even though your sponsor is gay, do you ever feel lust towards him?
  • Deviana Cres : [QUESTION FOR ILONA] Hi Ilona! i love your talk, i really want to sponsor people someday. I have a question regarding the sex difference between the sponsor and sponsee. I also read it in the White Book, yes, but didn't give an explanation. Can you share your view on this?
  • guest_7237 : I am looking for a sponsor. What should I be looking for?
  • guest_7237 : Hi Ilona
  • Anon : Can you tell me about what you do with a brand newcomer and starting out
  • Tzvi S : any questions?
  • Mark D. : I'm coming from the point of a sponsee. I'm not good at calling him or anyone else (mainly based on my own insecurities), and I feel like I'm failing him. How can I break out of this?
  • Tzvi S : Any questions for Ilona please post em here
  • Dennis T : Please direct your questions for ILona here
  • Dennis T : Glad she made it
  • Dennis T : whew
  • guest_7237 : Thanks so much for your ESH Bill

  • guest_7237 : Thanks, Jason
  • Jason c : Yes its recorded
  • guest_7237 : Hi. Is this recorded? I didn't hear the whole thing but what I did hear was awesome!!
  • Tracy M : Your honesty is incredible
  • Jason c : How do we contact him please
  • Jason c : Is bill on whatts app ??
  • Dennis T : Any other questions for Bill?
  • Shemaryahu : Do things out of love rather than fear
  • Dennis T : Please clarify

  • Dennis T : great question
  • CanadianJames : Can you share about some of proven actions that works for you to 'back away from the Animal(fear)?
  • CanadianJames : Hi, thanks so much!
  • Dennis T : This is your chance to ask any question about recovery
  • Tracy M : Thank you Bill. Your experience strength and hope are very encouraging
  • Dennis T : maybe some questions around the earlier comments?
  • Dennis T : questions for Bill?
  • Jason c : Great idea about the adding shame inventory to approved literature thanks bill
  • guest_5874 : Lust is an escape from fear and resentments. It's the causes and conditions like it says in the big book by step 4.
  • Dennis T : I understand the way you are saying that
  • Dennis T : 🙂
  • guest_2979 : Sorry but I think lust is the problem.
  • Dennis T : Lust is not the problem, is it the solution to my problem. Seperation from my HP by my character defects
  • guest_2979 : I’ve always looked at as I used acting out as a way to deal with my lust. Lust is my problem. Fear is at the root of all my lust and therefore my resentments. It’s the evil and corroding thread woven through the fabric of my existence. Are you saying lust is not your problem?
  • Dennis T : google translate?
  • guest_6390 : lust seemed to fill the hole of neglect
  • guest_6173 : Cómo puedo traducir la conversación en español?
  • Tracy M : Thank you for your share. It is sure to help me and my sponsees
  • Bilal : Have not acted out with another person since 2010, but I continue to struggle to gain sobriety from porn, why is this piece so difficult
  • Simeon Y : Has the weekly accountability helped you grow in the area of self-awareness? This is one of my biggest struggles
  • Dennis T : great question
  • guest_6390 : how does resentmtnt contribute to lust
  • Jason c : Great share carl from jason in australia
  • Dennis T : questions please
  • Dennis T : additional questions?
  • guest_7315 : definition of shame inventory I think?
  • guest_4940 : What is the 2nd question again?
  • Amjed B : I'm on the SIM 2019 WhatsApp Group if anyone wants connect and contribute to my sobriety 😉
  • guest_7315 : one of my favorite CD's is called Shameless: Seeing yourself as God sees you....it has been so helpful...I know God loves me and I am a beloved child of God, and yet at times I wear aspects of shame! I like how the speaker like in the CD makes a distinction between shame and guilt, guilt based on something we have done, but shame colors who we are, and not just of what we have done but what others have done to us!
  • guest_7315 : also how would I find a definition of a shame inventory, is it intrinsic to step 4?
  • guest_7315 : yes I am wondering if a shame inventory would be good for me when I get to step 4, I am working on step 1? of course I will ask my Higher Power!
  • Dennis T : Questions for Carl?
  • Dennis T : Thank you
  • guest_7315 : I realized that in the end it colored the way I viewed myself in front of women I have had a romantic interest in, and God is still healing me of it today at 42 years old
  • guest_7315 : what is interesting for me is an event that happened to me at 13 I was humiliated by someone in front of a girl I liked
  • Dennis T : EMBRACE: God, I offer to You, my soul. Fill it with Your Love that I will not want, that I will not need anything or anyone to fill up what is lacking in me. I ask You, my Loving God, to connect with me and make me whole. In Your Loving Arms, all my needs are met. Send me into this day as Your servant that I may do Your Will today and that I may help my fellows today rather than obsess about my loneliness, fears, resentments, guilt, unworthiness, or failures. {listen in silence for God’s rep
  • Dennis T : Amjed's Prayers...
  • Bart : Thank you for sharing Amjed. For me the miracle is that we are from the others part of world, but we have the same solutions and we can recover together. Thanks God for all of you guys.
  • guest_9924 : Can he give us that prayer in writing?
  • chani nj : that prayer nearly brought me to tears
  • Daniel R : Thanks so much for answering my question. I really appreciate the analogy of control versus surrender and the voice of self versus the voice of God. It is SO hard for me to slow down and invite God into the situation and breathe.
  • guest_1933 : Doesn't mean i could do whatever i want..
  • guest_1933 : I see myself like a diabetic. When im normal i have the balance ti take the correct actions that are appropriate for my condition.
  • Chesky S : Thank you so much i loved every minute especially the surrender of the cellphone before the bathroom that struck a chord
  • guest_1933 : In answer to guest_1191
  • George F : This disease is like being on an elevator that only goes down. The point where I push the button, stop the elevator and get out is my "bottom". Then I take the Steps back up.
  • Cathal In Ireland : Hi Amjed, Great to hear you tonight. I can really identify with you, so many things. Hope you make it to Ireland some day...Always welcome here! Cathal
  • guest_1191 : isnt it rue if we are working a good program we should be able to be like normal ppl
  • guest_8760 : How did you figure that netflix and facebook are your problems? How long did it take you?
  • guest_1191 : With all due respect according to what you saying we should live in a cave so we don’t get hit by lust
  • Jonathan L. : Thank you so much, unfortunately i have to go in to work. Will listen in during my break. Take care
  • Daniel R : Can you talk more about the difference b/w taking an action of powerlessness as a way to control lust versus as an act of surrender? It's hard for me to see the difference.
  • Jonathan L. : I agree. I think of my addiction as in remission. I know if i dont take care of myself, it can come back in full force. I love that analogy!
  • Tracy M : Thanks for your shares. I missed your intro
  • Jonathan L. : Dennis, my question is posted below...thanks
  • Friend from London : His message is so clear I can’t think of any questions
  • Hamza : Yes. Do yo have to hit rock bottom in order to finally make a decision to follow recovery ?
  • Dennis T : Any Questions for Amjed Please!
  • Jonathan L. : I've been sober since i joined SA. I dont have the experience of losing my sobriety. What i do when im disturbed works for me so i dont call people. I do call when something is too strong
  • Friend from London : One of the best lines I ever heard is, if I do the work is my business, if I stay sober is God’s business
  • Friend from London : I’m still powerless over acting out, I have zero control over it, but I can do the actions.
  • Jonathan L. : Would u still call people if u didnt lose your sobriety?
  • Jonathan L. : I am powerless over lust. It comes in my mind either from outside or inside influences. I am NOT powerless over acting out. I was, but now i have a choice. Before, i didnt. Now i can call people and use my HP.
  • Nick : This is giving me shiver, thank you very much!
  • Dennis T : Glad your here 🙂
  • Friend from London : I recognize that epiphany;-)
  • Hamza : Grateful to be here among this fellowship
  • Charlene (Belfast) : Great to be here and listening to the speakers
  • Dennis T : Glad your here
  • Charlene (Belfast) : Great to be here and listening the speakers
  • Dennis T : Questions for Amjed?
  • Friend from London : i always assumed that your newfound sobriety was a result of you getting to know me:-)
  • Friend from London : I haven’t heard that voice for too long.
  • Aaron, ID : Did you struggle to continue to gain traction in recovery after the high of giving your step one to your sponsor? How did you power through it?
  • Dennis T : questions ?
  • Nick : How do you deal with temptations when you have some?
  • Nick : How do you deal with temptations when you have some?
  • guest_8564 : How does one know if they are a real sexaholic
  • David from Mexico : Thank you 🙂
  • Dennis T : questions please?
  • David from Mexico : Have you been afraid of stop controlling situations and let them in the hands of your higher power? If so, How have you managed to deal with this?
  • Benji : Do you go through days where you feel you are fine and just don't need a connection with a higher power that day? What do you do on days like that?
  • Thad H : What are ways you connect with your spouse daily?
  • David from Mexico : How do you know what your higher power wants you to do?
