Each group has but one primary purpose — to carry its message to the compulsive eater who still suffers.
—Adapted from Alcoholics Anonymous.
We are a fellowship of people who have recovered from the illness of compulsive eating by following the program of action laid out in the book Alcoholics Anonymous (the Big Book). Our purpose is simple, clear, and outlined above.
We are compulsive eaters and our experience is that following the directions precisely out of the Big Book saved our lives; taking the Twelve Steps swiftly and thoroughly with the guidance of a sponsor and helping other compulsive eaters in turn.
We use the Big Book as our text, studying it in meetings and with our sponsors, because following the simple program of action in the Big Book is how we recovered. We bring our experience and knowledge of recovery to our meetings, and bring our fears, resentments and worries to our sponsors.
If compulsive eating is a problem for you we welcome you. If you have sat in therapy groups and discussion meetings, not taking the steps and wondering why you're not getting better, we welcome you.
This is an open membership group, which uses THE PRIMARY PURPOSE GROUP BIG BOOK STUDY GUIDE, developed by The Primary Purpose Group of Alcoholics Anonymous, Dallas, TX to do a line by line study of our basic text. As in any OA group, the only requirement for membership in OAPP is the desire to stop eating compulsively.
Each morning the moderator will post questions which can be answered by a line in the text. Later that day, the moderator will post the answers. We invite you to share your experience and knowledge with the portion of the text being studied.
You will need a sponsor to guide you through the program of recovery as outlined in the Big Book. We recommend that you find one from the Available Sponsors List by clicking on "Database".
