Higher Prescriber

My action plan is a prescription for recovery from my food addiction:

  • Eat three moderate, weighed-and measured meals
  • Pray morning, day, night, and as needed
  • Connect daily with my sponsor and OA friends
  • Attend two to three face-to-face OA meetings a week
  • Read OA-approved literature and other recovery and spiritual books two to three times a day, or more as needed
  • Exercise (walk, do yoga, stretch, clean house, do yard work) three to six times a week
  • Write on daily readings
  • Write and share Twelve Step work with sponsor weekly
  • Do service work daily
  • Weigh myself once a month and report to my sponsor
  • Write a gratitude list as needed, usually when feeling a negative or “poor me” attitude
  • Seek professional help as needed
  • Live imperfectly in the Principles of the program daily
  • Breathe, relax, let go, and live life in the moment

Whether I want to or not, I do these prescribed actions daily to relieve me of my cunning, baffling, powerful, and deadly disease of compulsive eating and food behavior because if I try being my own doctor, I will fail. Now I follow directions. Thanks OA and God!
