Welcome to the Obsessive Eaters Anonymous (OEA) website.
OEA is a fellowship of men and women who are recovering from an obsession with weight, size and eating through the use of the Twelve Step Programme of recovery begun by Alcoholics Anonymous. We saw the need for a Fellowship to help people like ourselves and formed our own Twelve Step Fellowship called Obsessive Eaters Anonymous in 1999.
We have many different symptoms including, obsession with weight and size, fear of eating too much, trying not to eat at all, bingeing, starving, throwing-up, abusing laxatives, excessive exercise etc.
Attempts to control our obsessive and compulsive relationship with food, weight and size, always end in failure with us not achieving our goals or achieving them for a short time before gradually losing all control and finding ourselves once again in the grips of despair and self-hatred.
We have found recovery in the Spiritual Principles of the Twelve Steps of Obsessive Eaters Anonymous. Through the process of the Steps, we find a Power Greater than ourselves which leads us to recovery.
We offer you our experience, strength and hope.
Come and join us - THERE IS A SOLUTION and YOU ARE NOT ALONE
