Overeaters or Food Addicts

Is there anyone who is involved with OA or FA?

I'm sorry. I'm not involved. I know there are places for people to go for support. This is a difficult problem as people who are addcited to food cannot do as alcoholics do and stay away from it completely. Are you wanting information or just a place for people to get together for support?

I think an online place for people to get support would be great if it could be annonymous.

I am not either but I do feel I as well as so many others are addicted to food. I use it as a crutch for so many things...saddness,anger,tension,bordom, and even happiness. I binge when upset and am very proud to say I have it under control (I think). I still binge occasionally but pick low sugar and fat free stuff to binge on as much as possible so I don't do so much damage. It is a constant battle and I am sure you can handle it. Even if you don't find a overeaters support group anyone who has a weight problem has comfort to give for you. I thought about it and did find meetings about 100 miles away, but I think there are some online groups out there. For me conquring the emotions may never happen but I am slowly learning to cope and still lose weight. Good luck and remember you can do it.

Pinkie Winky Oa & Fa

I am actually a member of FA. I just wanted to see if there are others out there and what their experience is. It has been a tremendous help to me; although it is challenging because we are faced with food everyday. And, with two young boys, it makes it even more challenging.

Just wanted to get others experiences if they have any.

Have a great day!

RevJane, I wish you well and I hope that this thread brings in others who need help. I think that getting support for this type of addiction is important. I am sure that controlling something that you require to live on is vital! Good luck!

I have been in Oa for many years. I am not as activeas I used to be, but the program has deffinatly helped me in my journey of recovery from food addiction. I am not only a compulsive overeater, I am also a bulimic. I have also found great help working with professionals. But, I would not have gotten to the place to look for help for myself without the 12steps. I have gone thru the steps, and it really is life changing.
Rock on Sister!
