Lenette came to SLAA back in 2014. She had gone thru a divorce and her addiction really surfaced shortly after. How her sex and love addiction shows up is that she feels she must be validated and chosen. She ripped thru peoples’ lives and hurt many. Only thinking of herself. Lenette’s codependency shows up when in a relationship. This looks like her micromanaging and pretty much giving up her life for her partner.
Lenette started her steps for the first time in 2014 with a sponsor when she got through step 2 and left, because she felt anger about and couldn’t figure out a higher power and couldn’t believe that God or something bigger than her actually loved her. Because if it did, why was she an addict and suffering? After several starts and stops, she finally got a Big Book sponsor and worked through all of the steps and started sponsoring others. As one of the results, she has found that she is loved and lovable. Even if she is not in a relationship.
Lenette now loves the 12 steps and finds that when she is taking a sponsee through them, it still moves her to tears. She really loves living Step 10 as it can mean cleaning the slate each night and starting anew the next day.
