I have just decided to start going

Kept going in and out of the program because I found it so hard to get abstinent.

it worked but the group went away

it works but it's constant work and concentration on the tools and I keep failing but I grew up a lot from it

I have been on program for 2 months and have lost 28 pounds. It is a completely different program than any of the MANY others I have tried. It isn't just a diet, although almost everyone who joins thinks it is when they arrive the first day. There are reasons each of us lives a life of food addiction. OA aids in complete recovery - not just weight loss, which actually becomes somewhat of a side effect to food addiction recovery. It is hard work, but the personal growth and development is amazing

Felt uncomfortable and it wasnt for me

I have been a member on and off for 19 years with varying degrees of success. I cannot find OA members like me. I have never been morbidly obese, but I have binged at night for years. Most successful members have been morbidly obese and have lost 100 lbs or more by restricting sugar and flour.

don't think I lost any weight

Worked until my sponsor stopped communicating with me without any warning.

In actuality I go to AA. Same 12 steps which I attempt to practice the design for living, the principles taught in all my affairs. It is simple but not easy to commit to the 12 steps. These 12 steps saved my life, and relieves all my obsessions from eating disorder, self-mutilation and alcohol.
