With a 148 pound weight loss Gary has experienced the miracle of OA both physically, mentally and spiritually. Excess food was always something he was drawn to. After having lost his weight he relapsed gaining 100 pounds in 3 months.
He shares, “In an act of rebellion, which was subconscious, I went back into the hospital for a suicide attempt because I couldn’t deal with life on life’s terms. I couldn’t deal with my emotional and mental state.”
Doug continued going to OA meetings and had an epiphany that allowed him to find a concept for his Higher Power. A few days later he got abstinent and remains that way – one day at a time.
