The Recovery Group

Welcome Home

12 Step Friends Anonymous is a discussion group for compulsive eaters in the Discovery Division of The Recovery Group and we would love to have you join us. Most of our members are also members of Overeaters Anonymous.

12 Step Friends Anonymous has a very special mission. Unlike many recovery lists in cyberspace, we focus on becoming a recovery family. We are here to build each other up ~ not to tear each other down. We are here to accept each of us as we are ~ and not to judge. We offer safety and serenity, resources to work a complete 12 Step program and, most of all, hope. Although we share informally in this loop, we realize that when we share using the "I" word, we do not offend others. By writing our own experience, strength and hope, we can inspire others and that is done by letting our fellow members know how our life was as a COE, what happened when we were introduced to the 12 Step Program and, as a result of program, how things are now ... or how we hope they will one day be if we continue working the program.

12 Step Friends is a place where 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, you will have a safe haven where you can interact with others who are suffering from the disease of food addiction. The 12 Step Friends support group does not just focus on our physical problems. We focus on our emotional and our spiritual needs as well. Our recovery home is not a religious program ... it is a spiritual program. We are not a church ... we are a group of men and women who are hurting physically, spiritually and emotionally. We are not bad people trying to be good ... we are sick people trying to get well.

Our way of finding recovery is through the Twelve Steps. We have reached a place in our life where this may be the last stop on the bus ~ the last house on the block. And we have come to believe that there has to be a power greater than ourselves and it doesn't matter what we call this power ... but it does matter that we admit to ourselves and each other that we cannot recover alone.

There is only one requirement for membership in 12 Step Friends Anonymous ~ the sincere desire to stop eating compulsively. If you have this desire and would like to become part of our recovery family, we welcome you with open arms. Our mission is firm ... our purpose is resolute ... our goal is to ensure a better quality of life for compulsive eaters worldwide. Through the miracle of the Twelve Steps, tools to reach and maintain a state of abstinence, individual sponsors, online OA meetings, special focus loops, dedicated Trusted Servants and many other tools of recovery to offer you, we will accomplish our mission, achieve our purpose and exceed our goals.

"In the deepest part of a compulsive eater's soul . . .
is the realization that recovery begins when we find one another."
