Letters


The idea for “The Letters Project” arose from a week I spent in a “Sex Recovery Workshop” held at The Meadows Recovery Center in Wickenburg, Arizona.

About


The letter to the addict took about 2-3 hours to complete. It was lengthy, thoughtful, very specific, and extremely difficult to write. The reason it was difficult was because it forced me to think about the work that was at hand (which was very hard and overwhelming). The second letter was not as lengthy, but what amazed me was how quickly I finished it. I must have taken less than 5 minutes to write (VERY RAW).


The first letter was addressed to our “Sex Addict,” where we had to explain what we were willing to do to stay sober.
The second letter was a response from our sex addict to us.
