Our Invitation to You
We of Overeaters Anonymous have made a discovery. At the very first meeting we attended, we learned that we were in the clutches of a dangerous illness, and that willpower, emotional health and self-confidence, which some of us had once possessed were no defense against it. We have found that the reasons for the illness…
The Promises We are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness. We will not regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it. We will comprehend the word serenity and we will know peace. No matter how far down the scale we have gone, we will see how our experience can benefit others. That feeling of uselessness and…
Is this MFP group still around?
Is this group still active?

I miss my regular face to face meetings, but I'm grateful we can meet via Zoom and the phone. I'm also a workaholic who recently became unemployed, so I know…

My 18 year old, because she called me from her lunch break in Texas just to tell me that she loves me, but plans on beating me in…
Newcomer to OA
I am new to OA. I have AA experience and am on Step 4 in that fellowship. I know that to do it right you need a sponsor, go to meetings and work the steps. I am highly motivated. I am looking for a male OA sponsor. Preferably in the Atlanta area. I know nothing about OA.
