Monday Men's Meeting

of Sex Addicts Anonymous®

CHAIR AGENDA Updated 04Dec2023

Begin the meeting promptly at 4:30.

LET'S GO

Good day, and welcome to the Monday Men's Meeting of Sex Addicts Anonymous.

My name is [......], and I am serving as your Chair today. This is a closed meeting for men who are sex addicts desiring their own sexual sobriety.

Let us begin the meeting with a moment of silence and the Serenity Prayer.

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

 

(Start Screensharing)

THE READINGS

Our tradition in this meeting is to share 3-5 readings from the Green Book of SAA, as selected from the list on the screen. Everyone is encouraged to participate regardless of their time in the program.

Is there a volunteer to read #1, or your choice of readings?

 

(Stop screensharing)

Welcome, Everyone!

If this is your first visit to this meeting, we would appreciate you introducing yourself.  You are welcome to share as much or as little about yourself as you like. We will all have a chance to check in with more details later when we break into small groups.

Phone Calls

We have learned that making and receiving phone calls can be an important benefit of being in a recovery group. If you would like to receive calls, texts, or emails from your brothers, please put your first name, last initial, and contact info into the chat section. ​We also maintain a list of this group's regular members and would be grateful to add your phone number to that list, if you so request.

Birthdays
In this program, we take time to recognize those who have reached particular milestones of consecutive clean time. Is there anyone here who is marking a milestone of sobriety this week? 

Sponsorship

A sponsor is a person in the fellowship who acts as a guide to working the program of SAA, a fellow addict we can rely upon for support. Ideally, a sponsor is abstinent from addictive sexual behavior and has worked the twelve steps. A temporary sponsor will help you through your early days and weeks of your new recovery program until you find someone to become your permanent sponsor, often someone who becomes a lifelong friend.

  • If you need a temporary or permanent sponsor, please put your contact info into the chat section. You can also hang around after the meeting ends at 5:30 for some informal discussion.

 

TRUSTED SERVANT REPORTs

REMINDER: We are self-supporting in keeping with the 7th Tradition of SAA. If you'd like to contribute to your recovery and to our meeting expenses, you can do that online at www.donorbox.org/mondaymen where our donor page will walk you through the options. 

Currently, we have ____ in our account. 

 

Last week we had ____ in attendance. Our topic was ________________ and was offered by _______________.

Are there any other announcements or comments for the common good?


TOPIC DISCUSSION

Participation in our discussion time is open to everyone.

In this meeting, we use the word "I" instead of "you" when sharing about recovery.

• We address our sharing to the whole group, not to one or more individuals.

• We avoid mentioning specific names or places associated with our acting out behavior.

And remember, our focus remains on the solution rather than the problem. We will stop the sharing and go to check-in at 5:15.


Does anyone have a recovery topic for discussion?

[someone suggests a topic, then...]

Thank you for the topic of... (restate as you understand the topic).

The floor is now open.

CHECK-IN (about 5:15)

It's time for check-in. We will now break into small groups. Each person is encouraged to share as much or as little as they like, using the following outline:

  • how our addiction has manifested in our lives,

  • how long we have been sober from sexually acting out, and

  • what is going on in our life that impacts our recovery.

We will open the breakout rooms now, and will bring us all back together in about 15 minutes when we'll close today's meeting.

 

 

CLOSING

Remember, this is a closed meeting for sex addicts.

What you hear here, whom you see here, when you leave here, leave it here! [Here, Here!]

 

Please join me now for the WE version of the Serenity Prayer...

[Together] God, grant us the serenity to accept the things we cannot change, the courage to change the things we can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

Keep coming back.

It works, if you work it,

because you're worth it.
