From Our Fellows: Staying for the Sanity

When I first attended OA, I did not believe I had a disease. It was only after working the First Step that I realized I had an allergy of the body and an obsession of the mind. I was absolutely powerless over food. I would try to control my food, but inevitably it led to more and more binges.


In OA I learned that I have this disease and I learned so many tools to cope with it. And for the first time I felt I was not alone with this problem. Everyone in the meetings understood exactly where I was coming from. And I could count on them. They gave me hope for the future and the Steps gave me a blueprint for my life. I realized over time that not only was my eating better, but my life was better. My relationships were better. I felt a lot more joy in living. You sometimes hear in OA I came for the vanity, but I stayed for the sanity. This has been true for me. Thank you OA for all you have done. I can’t imagine my life without you.
