Changes Ever Since

1 min read

I came into OA about thirty years ago and have been abstinent from sugar and white flour for twenty-four years. Since becoming abstinent, I’ve had:
• No more cavities—from age 7, I’d spent hours in the dentist’s chair.
• No more debt—I’ve learned that contentment is enjoying what I have, not getting what I want.
• No more locking myself out of the car or sitting on my glasses—I now think more clearly.
• No more depression—I’ve learned that my purpose in life is “to be of maximum service to God and the people around us” (Alcoholics Anonymous, 4th ed., p. 77).

Most importantly, I have learned that I have a God who “could and would . . .” relieve my food obsession “if He were sought” (Alcoholics Anonymous, 4th ed., p. 60), and he did! — Carol, Indiana USA
