WOMEN IN SAA:
GETTING STARTED AS A WOMAN


WHERE TO START:
We suggest coming to at least six local meetings or tele-meetings within a short period of time before deciding whether SAA is right for you. Be gentle with yourself, and give yourself time to listen to others' stories and absorb the introductory literature. If you are like us, you did not get to where you are now overnight. It will also take time to become oriented to this program and a new way of thinking and living in recovery.

WOMEN ONLY MEETING IN YORK CITY:
We currently do not have a Women Only meeting in New York city though all meetings are open to Women with the exception of the Mens Only meetings

OTHER NEW YORK CITY MEETINGS:
In addition to the Women Only meeting above we have almost 40 mixed weekly meetings, for details of these meetings go to nycsaa.org/meetings 

HELPFUL LINKS:

Pamphlet: “A Special Welcome to the Woman Newcomer from Other Women Members of SAA”

“Safe and Sexually Sober Meetings: Helping Women Feel Welcome in Your Meetings”

DIRECTORY OF TELEMEETINGS:
To tap into a thriving SAA women's network, try a tele-meeting. These are phone meetings that occur every day of the week, and are as easy as dialing a long distance number and entering a pass code. Please introduce yourself during introductions so you can experience the warmth and love of this supportive network of women from all over the world. The list of tele-meetings and the contacts for these meetings are available on the SAA web site.

STORY OF A WOMAN SEX ADDICT:
"I came to SAA because I had nowhere else to go. I had exhausted all other options, trying to "figure out" why I kept making the same mistakes - depending on destructive relationships even though they were damaging my life. SAA gave me a solution to my problems and a beautiful way of life. But more than that, I met other people who, while they acted out in all sorts of ways, thought and felt very much like me. It helped me so much to know I'm not alone and these guys helped me rebuild my self-esteem and live in relative freedom from obsession and cravings. I am eternally grateful to this fellowship for giving me a chance at happiness."- Anonymous, New York, NY
