I embrace SA's programme and AA's 12 Steps and 12 Traditions without any reservations. They have worked for millions of addicts since 1935 and I am confident that they will continue to do so. They work because they are timeless spiritual principles at the heart of every great spiritual tradition in the world.
Here's how I see it. We have maybe 15,000 SA members worldwide who each acted out for 30 years, on average. This adds up to 450,000 years of acting out. These members all tried to control and enjoy lust or to stop lusting altogether but failed, which is why they came to SA.
So if 450,000 years of trying to stop in innumerable ways did not work for these 15,000 people, and today SA does work for them... then I surrender gladly to this simple solution for complicated people.
