I’d like to share a love note Higher Power gave me with tips for staying abstinent and sane during the holidays. Dear One, thanks for getting in touch! Please know this: Nothing you could think, say, or do could make me love or respect you less. If you’re in the food, you’re separating yourself from me and others only by your own guilt and self loathing. There’s magic in using the OA Tools, working the Steps, and being honest no matter what; change the things you can so you can stay abstinent and we can stay connected this holiday season.
