Stephanie, compulsive eater and food addict, and Ronnie, a compulsive overeater, host the introductory workshop of a series designed to encourage OA members to work all Twelve Steps.

This episode explores the nature of the disease of compulsive eating and the willingness it takes to begin the recovery journey. Some refer to the state of being while in the depths of this disease and just before accepting the OA program as “Step Zero.”

For Discussion and Journaling:

  • What are the reservations that cause me to resist recovery and resist working the Steps?
  • What resources are available to me on the OA website?
  • Am I willing to open my heart to a sponsor or to another person no matter what?
  • Is what I’m doing still working for me?
