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?"

"I had it emailed to me so I don't know where it would be posted online. I will gladly email it to anyone who wants it."

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.

"You lived with your Heavenly Father in a premortal life. You were there with Him. Your spirit knows what it is like to live in celestial realms. You can never be truly happy in an uncelestial environment. You know too much. That is one of the reasons that for you, wickedness never can be happiness. What a great thing it is to decide once and for all early in life what you will do and what you will not do with regards to honesty, modesty, chastity, the Word of Wisdom, and temple marriage. "
