As I have been working with the program of Overeaters Anonymous I am absolutely amazed at the changes that have occured in my life. This book is another one of those wonderful books that has helped ease me along in the very difficult task of changing and overcoming my eating disorder.
This book is a compiliation of many different OA members across the United States struggles and triumphs with Abstinence (from overeating). Their stories help you realize that many others go through those struggles every day the way you do with food. Many have been abstinent for 25 or more years. Many are newly abstinent.The stories are interesting to read and helpful. An excellent book for member of OA, overeaters or binge eaters.

Although I did not follow all the steps of the program (which are listed in the book), the writing of members sharing their stories was an inspiration and kick-started my healthier eating habits and made them easier to stick with. Poems, personal stories and insights fill the categorized section of this book and serve as testimonials that success is possible, and I was able to achieve my own goals with the inspiration of this book. Good Luck!
