More About This Book

Overview

Now in one place, learn where to find free Phone Meeting Help - Online Meeting Help - Sponsors-Phone Buddies - Face-to-Face Meetings - Online Discussions - Podcasts - Free Literature - and more with one compulsive eater helping another. You will learn distinguishing features of each type of help and in each circle of people, including if the group has a suggested plan of eating and how to find it.

With information in this book you will be able to get started with free phone meetings, sponsor-phone buddy lists, and other resources available. This resource provides information. It serves the function of "press."
Geneen Roth suggests connection breaks isolation in Women Food and God. People are the instrumentalities. "One compulsive eater helping another" is the heart and soul.
Connecting from home is possible. There are over 150 free phone meetings a week. People dial in from home, from car or work. They speak their truth. People from the U.S. and other countries come together. They communicate and problem-solve in new ways. Others can be counted on, as food never could be, for answers, comfort, and good solid companionship. People are a great resource - one of the greatest resources. We learn from others like us and others different from us, yet similar.
The help described is non-commercial. People do not charge money. Anonymous individuals who practice Twelve Step Recovery decided to produce this yellow pages. It does not endorse or promote any single organization, method or approach; it is neither endorsed nor sponsored by any organization.
You will find people who share about obsession with body size, weight and shape; eating binges; grazing; preoccupation with reducing diets, starving; restricting; excessive exercise; inducing vomiting after eating; use of diet pills, laxatives or diuretics, use of other diet remedies, including bariatric surgery, lap band surgery, weight-loss surgery; vulnerability to quick weight-loss schemes; magical thinking about weight loss; food fantasies or romancing the food; isolation in food; guilt and remorse about eating behaviors and other behaviors. There is no single remedy espoused for all. People follow their own process.
