Home Recovery Doubly Troubled

Doubly Troubled

About the Ask-It Basket in the July 2019 issue, how could the trustee who responded, writing that OA does not offer food plans at meetings, not have read the new Where Do I Start? pamphlet? Pages 13–17 are devoted entirely to, perhaps not “food plans,” but “plans of eating.” How are these different? One plan of eating looks rather similar to old gray sheet.  This seems very much like doublespeak. It also sounds to me as if, once again, OA is trying to compete with diet programs without seeming to do so.
