We are beginning the process of creating a bank of stories and briefer experiences from our local members. We hope these stories will help you identify with how compulsive eating and food addiction affected us, how we found the solution, and how recovery has changed our lives and outlooks.
Because members define their abstinence, plans of eating, and action plans individually, some of us will also share these aspects of our program so that others may see the diverse ways in which OA can help. They represent a member’s experience, and are not requirements. For more information see OA’s pamphlet “The Tools of Recovery,” which is also located in its newcomer packet.
Check back periodically for new stories and sample plans. Follow us by email to receive updates and notifications when we post them.
