OA (Overeaters Anonymous) Misses the Mark

Tuesday, August 06, 2013

I often wondered why OA wouldn't work for me & then I took a clear look @ the 12 Step format: Moral Inventory; Wrongs; Defects of Charactr; Making Amends; & Humbling One's self. WOWZA - this stuff is totally off base! A. It has nothing to do w/ me or my behavior & B. everything to do w/ what could possibibly be wrong w/ you as a person. Having a chemical imbalance in the brain doesn't remotely mean that your character is lacking in some way. Good Grief!

Am wondering if any of you have come across support groups (in person vs online) that use a different paradigm beyond this old AA model. If so, please share what is working for you.

I'm currently reading The Hunger Fix - check out one of her seminars here:
