“BUT I’M NOT AN ALCOHOLIC”
An OA Special Event in Two Parts
Dec 9th and 16th, 2011, 6:00 PM to 7:15 PM
A panel of Big Book qualified OA speakers** will explain how they each concluded that the best approach to recovery in Overeaters Anonymous was through reliance on the Big Book, the basic text of our “mother fellowship,” Alcoholics Anonymous. Their stories will explain how they overcame their initial resistance to this 75 year old book, written in the 1930s largely by alcoholic, middle-aged, Christian, white, straight men.
Our diverse OA speakers will explain how this book became central to their own recovery from the disease of compulsive eating, and how they use the Big Book in their OA recovery, including how they found a Big Book sponsor, and how they integrated other OA group conscience approved literature (such as the OA 12 & 12) into their OA Big Book recovery.
