IN THIS INTENSELY PERSONAL MEMOIR, Staci Sprout offers a vulnerable account of her recovery journey from the painful world of sexual intrigue and addiction. She was an honors student and cheerleader, and later a talented young social worker, but her life had a dark twist even her closest friends didn’t suspect. Childhood sexual abuse and exposure to pornography had ignited a drive to be sexual that eventually threatened to unravel her sanity and her life. Desperate for relief, she tried psychotherapy, hypnotism, bodywork, and traditional and pagan spirituality. Nothing helped until a near-death experience became a turning point and she found her way into the rooms of 12-Step recovery for sex addiction. Staci’s story reveals what can happen when a woman refuses to give up in her fight for dignity and freedom. The wisdom that emerges will be both a roadmap and inspiration for anyone, male or female, who struggles with sexual addiction – and to their loved ones. “One of the most compelling recovery stories I’ve read.” – CLAUDIA BLACK, PhD, author of Intimate Treason and It Could Never Happen to Me “A bright gift of hope to individuals and couples impacted by sex addiction.” – DRS. BILL AND GINGER BERCAW, relationship columnists for The Huffington Post, authors of The Couple’s Guide to Intimacy “Incredibly powerful. A much-needed voice for female sex addicts, who far too often are shamed into silence.” – ROBERT WEISS, LCSW, CSAT-S, author of Always Turned On: Sex Addiction in the Digital Age “An instant recovery classic and a beautiful helping guide for anyone struggling with addictions.” – MARI LEE, LMFT, CSAT-S, author of Facing Heartbreak: Steps to Recovery for Partners of Sex Addicts
