Support for Getting Through Thanksgiving

keep calm and stop eatingWhile normal eaters plan what to eat on Thanksgiving Day, we compulsive eaters plan what not to eat. And we need a Higher Power to help us turn that plan into action. That can be a tough order if we go it alone, but we have two opportunities for support here in the Seacoast.
