Home Fellowship No Longer Isolated

No Longer Isolated

1 min read

It is a wonderful feeling to go around the room and look into another compulsive eater’s eyes and say, “I put my hand in yours because I care,” and really mean it sincerely.

Unity Day reminds me that I am no longer isolated in my home, in my room, in my hiding places, being loved and comforted by my food. In recovery, when I say the Serenity Prayer every morning, I am reminded of the collective surrender of OA to a Higher Power of our own choosing.

How many thousands and possibly millions of food addicts learn to rely on an HP instead of continuing to defy an HP? Unity Day reminds me of the love and acceptance I gain all over the world when I go to a meeting in OA.

We are all together now, just one OA member to another, no matter the length of abstinence, reaching out our hands, one day at a time, for recovery through the Steps and Traditions of Overeaters Anonymous.
