e-Group's Home Page

Spreading Across the Globe

Our outreach extends from New York to Moscow to London to Beijing.

Participation

As of January 31st, 2015, this e-Group has 1,149 members from over 618 cities spanning over fifty-four countries across six continents that participate in the e-meetings, the Gratitude Blog, the forums, and recovery friendships online.

Our membership is 55.4% female and 44.6% male.

We are a haven of safety for actors, politicians, teachers, and others whose face or voice is recognizable and whose participation must be kept anonymous at a level not possible with face-to-face or phone meetings. We support one another in recovery from a wide range of difficulties: Love addiction, fantasy, obessive thoughts, sexual compulsion, romantic obsession, excessive masturbation, risky liasons, and a variety of other patterns signifying addiction.

We have more women than men, perhaps because they feel egroup safety exceeds that of other group types.

Outreach to the World

Since our inception in October of 2009 we have been visiteed by over 10,000 people from all over the world. Many of the new members that benefit from recovery friendships and resource within our group have never before attended this type of recovery meeting, often because there are none in their area. Some learn of recovery from romantic and sexual fantasy, romantic obsession, sexual addiction, codependency, love addiction, voyeurism, expositionism, and other compulsions through educational television, surfing the net, or another of a wide variety of information sources. These new members are getting sober and finding, perhaps for the first time in their lives, freedom.

Here are just a few of the cities that have benefitted from the recovery at this e-group: Singapore, New York, Toronto, Omaha, Lake Forest, Mission Viejo, Anniston, Miami, Albany, Radcliff, Don Mills,

Our first e-meeting was a topic discussion meeting on November 16th, 2009. There were 8 participants.
