“Meeting on the Menu” (March 2019, p. 7) reminded me of two OA miracles: arriving “to the meeting on time” and “how effortless it had been to refrain from compulsive overeating” once I became abstinent.

Because my life today doesn’t yet look how I wish it would, I often forget where I came from. I used to be in constant turmoil because of being late all the time and coming up with lies to cover it. Thanks to working the Steps, I now experience the serenity that comes with punctuality and taking responsibility for my behavior. And even if I sometimes have food thoughts after three years of abstinence, they are nothing like the former strength of my cravings and my 24-hour meals. Thank you, dear author, and thank you to all who share their stories. You’re helping me lots.
