1995-15 1995 Sunday Convention Banquet – Maureen O. (MP3)
Maureen identifies as both a codependent and sex addict. She was raised with covert incest and became pregnant at 15. She felt like her self-worth came from sex and relationships. She says that she had a “broken picker” and always chose unhealthy relationships. She came into recovery when her son realized he was a sex addict. In recovery, her world expanded. She no longer has to prove herself through sex. She realized that she can be true to herself and true to her partner.
