What happens at meetings?

Meetings are where we learn we’re not alone. We encourage every member, and especially newcomers, to attend at least three meetings each week. The strength, hope and encouragement we derive from our meetings is invaluable. A schedule of HOW meetings is available here.

At meetings you will hear positive shares from recovering compulsive eaters. They will talk about how they used the 12 Steps and the Tools of Recovery of the HOW-OA program and became able to cope with life without eating compulsively.

Meetings begin and end with brief readings from HOW-OA literature. Some meetings continue with more reading and discussion; at other meetings a member shares their story. Then there is time available for those who wish to briefly share their experience, strength and hope.

Come to a meeting (see schedule) and listen. We will welcome you, answer any questions and help you get started. We all began the same way.
