Always Hope

Our meeting responded to a discussion question from an issue of Lifeline: “What would you say to a still-suffering compulsive overeater?”

One day at a time, through the program and other recovering overeaters, our spirits begin to shine through the clouds of loneliness and isolation. Keep coming back. The miracle will happen for you too.

There is hope. There is always hope. No matter what level of despair or pain you are experiencing and no matter how bleak your future seems, there is hope.

This is a program of action, so focus on what you can do. Can you call someone? Journal? Read literature? Get to a meeting? Be of service? Pick something and then do it. Hope will glimmer on the horizon like the rising sun as you take action in this program.

“God could and would if he were sought” (Alcoholics Anonymous, 4th ed., p. 60), so keep coming back. You’re worth it. You too can discover freedom from food obsession, one Step at a time. Try different meetings. Find someone who has what you want and ask them to be your sponsor. We love you already.

Without a doubt, there is hope. The promises speak of this hope, which will become real.

— A.K., Tempe, Arizona USA
