Hey everyone I am really trying to get a hold of the manual. Is there anyone on this site that can help me get it for my dear wife? I really want her to heal from this mess I have caused. I have heard it is a good resource to compliment her recovery efforts.


If you post a personal email address I'll send you the manual via email attachment

"If you have an electronic copy, is it not available online somewhere, so that you can post a link to it? Do you think you can make it available online?"

It is still in the pilot stage    
"Please have your wife email me at and I will send a downloadable copy of the women's 12 step Manual.

Even Better, If she would like to tell me the city she live in, I can possibly direct her to a meeting for pornography/sex addicted spouses only.

It is still in it's pilot stage, but it has made huge difference in my life.

I know what she is gong through and connecting with women in her situation WILL help her to have the courage necessary to overcome this of most difficult situations. I am even happy to give her my phone number if she would like someone to talk to.

I pray for and keep the name of spouses and addicts in my prayers and on the Temple prayer roll . We are fighting a war . The great part about this war is that we know how it ends:)

I am truly sincere in reaching out to a sister in pain.

Thanks ANGELMOM    
"I just wanted to thank you for sending me the attachments for those manuels. I printed them off and made a copy for the Sister Missionary who is over the spouses recovery group. I attended my first meeting yesterday and she was just using the regular 12 book. But these have SO much more info geared towards us. Thanks Again"

I am so grateful    

What a blessing it is to have my group and this manual. I am also thrilled that you went to your first meeting!!! I use to feel sick about going, now I am praising God. It is still very hard, but I love the fact that I am no longer suffering in silence and alone. We truly bless one another.

I started out feeling shame for so many years. That is why I would not speak of it to anyone. I am still very careful as I do not want to "put my pearls before swine". However, As each week passes and as I work my steps, I can feel the power of the atonement melt my feelings of shame away.

I am proud of you for going. It takes a lot of courage. It also takes a tremendous amount of courage for the men to go.

Keep going. This program is authored by Christ and It will have the power to heal you.
