In this caring and candid guide to difficult and central issues surrounding sobriety, Jack Mumey shares the skills necessary to improve relationships while remaining in recovery.
For people in sobriety, a successful relationship involves the ability to engage in sexual activities and relationships without having to return to the use of alcohol or some other drug. While the idea of sober sex can be frightening, working through the fear can bring great rewards to a relationship.
In this frank and supportive book, Jack Mumey encourages readers to face their fears and learn how to change their sexual behavior. Using projects and exercises, Sex and Sobriety will help readers understand the negative effect alcohol may have had on relationships while enabling readers to get back in touch with their own sexuality.
The projects within this book will help reconnect partners by strengthening the bonds of commitment, communication, trust, and respect that are essential to a satisfying, sober sex life.
