Merry Belated Christmas!

Doug shared with us his story of recovery as a young person.  He hit his first bottom young at 16 and now has a little under 2.5 years of abstinence with about 150 pound weight loss at 24 years old.  There were many struggles, but Doug is recovering and learning how to live life while finding out who he is.

Victor describes to us how from the very first time he had real food, he knew he was a compulsive oereater.  Food was always readily available and it wasn't frowned upon.  When he hit his bottom and finally came to OA, he realized that he needed to let go of his punishing Higher Power and find one that worked for him if he was to find recovery.  He did find that power greater than himself and has found spiritual, physical and emotional recovery.  Even with long term abstinence, he still has to work the program just as hard if not harder than when he first came in, but he is willing and does it on a daily basis.

Ken shares with us his story of recovery over the past 30 years.  He came in at over 300 pounds and is now maintaining around a 170 pound weight today.  His story is one of isolation, depression and anger, which he says depression is anger without enthusiasm.  He was very ambivalent about working the program and only worked it so he could prove it didn't work and move on with his life.  The program worked, however, and it got him through some very tough times in his life.  He is proof that we can stay in recovery and keep coming back no matter what!
