Teens ~ One Day at a Time
The Recovery Group
Teens One Day at a Time is a discussion list for teen-agers who have eating disorders and wish to have a safe place to share their experience, strength and hope about this disease. Eating disorders begin at an early age and by the teen age years, damage is already being done both physically and psychologically. If you are or know of a teen-ager who is a compulsive eater, an anorexic or bulimic, please join us. You will be safe here. You will find recovery here. If you'd like more information, please visit our website at www.TheRecoveryGroup.org
To join our list, please read the instructions below.
The Teens One Day at a Time Loop
Step 1: We said we had a real problem with food and because of that problem our lives kept getting messed up.
TWELVE STEPS FOR TEENS
Step 2: We came to believe that there is a Power around that will help us to think straight and see the truth.
Step 3: We decided that we would see if we could find out more about this Power and slowly let it help us. We call this Power `God' but it doesn't have to be a `God' found in a church or something. It can be anything I want it to be, so long as I understand what it is that's OK.
Step 4: With the help of someone else called a `sponsor' or OA friend so that we weren't afraid, we had a look at our lives and all the problems we have and what might cause them. We also looked at our good points. We called this an inventory.
Step 5: We had a little time with our Power called God and went through what we had found in Step 4, and doing this we saw it too and shared it with someone.
Step 6: We were ready to have the Power called God remove anything that makes us feel bad about ourselves.
Step 7: We asked him to remove them.
Step 8: We made a list of anyone we had hurt and became willing to say sorry and especially to change how we treat other people.
Step 9: We said sorry and began to change a little bit. We didn't rush around saying sorry though if it meant we might hurt someone.
Step 10: Every day we kept on looking to see if any of our old problems were still happening and if they were, we did something straight away.
Step 11: We carried on talking (or praying) to our Power called God and spend some quiet time and see if we can work out or hear what it is our Power wants for us to do.
Step 12: Now we feel a whole lot better we tried to help someone else and show them how we got better. We tried to become better people.
