Twelfth-Step-Within Day (Dec. 12) is an annual event established by the World Service Business Conference of Overeaters Anonymous in 2009. Groups and Intergroups around the world are encouraged to plan events to support the still suffering compulsive eater within our fellowship.
Twelfth Step work isn’t only about introducing the OA program of recovery to those compulsive eaters who have never heard of OA. Among us, we have still-suffering compulsive eaters who are already in the rooms.
Members in relapse suffer greatly and are in need of a caring connection and our support. There are also those members who may have taken a break from program and recovery who may just need a phone call from a familiar voice saying, “We’ve been missing you at meetings” in order to feel welcomed back into the fellowship.
If your group would like to get started with something simple, here are ideas to make it happen.
