Secrets of Success

Join Debtors Anonymous



I was living in total terror of anything financial. By the end of June 2009 I had generated thousands of dollars in overdraft fees and lost thousands of dollars in expired unfiled medical insurance claims. And I had accumulated $40,000 in debt.

In desperation I joined Debtors Anonymous in July '09. Since then I have neither incurred any overdraft fees nor have I missed any insurance claims. Working DA's 12-Step program I have learned how to live within my means one day-at-a-time.

  • Thanks so much JRBASKIND. And yes, LIFE_IS_SO_GOOD my stress level is way, way down. It was already improving a lot in Overeaters Anonymous which I joined in April '09, which is how I got to my goal weight (90lb down from my all-time high) and my joy level was also up but no question about it DA is a major relief from financial terror. - by DOVWLKWDNJUSA
