Other People’s Programs

I entered OA in the fall of 2008, miserable, steeped in my addiction, and knowing there was nothing I could do about it. At my first meeting, I was convinced OA was not going to work, but I was wrong about that. It did work, and I have been abstinent since 2010. As a consequence of my abstinence, my body shed about 125 pounds (57 kg), and I have not found it necessary to regain them. I do not concern myself with weight loss. For me, trying to lose weight is as much a prison of addiction as compulsive eating.
