It was a painful experience. the "counselor" did not like my honest replies and search for help and berated my efforts in front of the online group. Thank god it was not face-to-face or I would be quite shattered now. As it is, it's taken me 2 years to seek help again based on that experience.

It is a wonderful program and I would recommend it but I am extremely shy so I'm hoping I can come out of my shell more with this group. The computer makes people like me brave.

Didn't like it. It was not for me.

It worked when I was motivated but I lost my motivation so it is not working for me right now. The only side effects are good when I'm doing it but I find it very hard to do it right now because my husband recently passed away.

Working, still haven't surrendered myself to a food plan with a sponsor yet, big step, don't want to give control of my food to another person. Don't want to hear them say, that wasn't on your food plan.

Working slowly, can't bring myself to commit to a food plan with a sponsor, thats a problem! Still picking between meals. Some progress made with eating only until I feel satisfied and being aware of when I am eating compulsively.

I attended OA meetings in London 12 years ago and it really helped. I wish I could join a group now but there doesn't seem to be any in Berkshire.

I have a sponsor, I also sponsor someone else in OA, I am abstinent and this is working. The best thing I have experienced in a long time. I am thankful for meetings, sponsor, and support but the final solution is spiritual and with the 12 steps and AA Big book and OA literature
