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.

found the "counselor" too subjective. Her response to my honest questions was to berate me in front of others.
Working / Worked
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 / Worked
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.

used it and quit after a while
