“Many of us have found that automatic interventions are better than trying to evaluate whether we are at risk for a relapse. We can make a phone call whenever we are exposed to a trigger, regardless of whether we feel like acting out.”

Sex Addicts Anonymous, page 68

Making a habit of staying connected through regular use of the telephone can be a tremendous asset in my recovery toolbox. With a consistent pattern of telephone calls to a few recovering members, I develop the framework of support I need in my recovered life. During challenging situations I will be more inclined to pick up the phone, make a call and reach out for the support I need in order to keep me from moving into addictive behavior as the result of a triggering situation.

Today I will commit to making three phone calls to members of the fellowship.
