MEN OF OA
Are you the only man in your meeting? Do you have trouble freely sharing in meetings
of mostly women? The World Service Survey done in 2010 revealed that only about 13%
of our fellowship consists of men! If you want to connect with other men in OA,
there are many meetings, by phone and in-person, with a Special Focus for
Men, as well as several other ways you can connect with men in the program.
* The Charlottesville WEDNESDAY 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm Literature Study, Meditation meeting
has a new location at the Senior Center (aka The Center), 491 Hillsdale Drive, Charlottesville.

(This is a NEW meeting and will begin on March 7th)
Anonymous is a Fellowship of individuals who, through
shared experience, strength, and hope, are recovering from compulsive
overeating. We welcome everyone who wants to stop eating compulsively.
There are no dues or fees for members; we are self-supporting through
our own contributions, neither soliciting nor accepting outside
donations. OA is not affiliated with any public or private organization,
political movement, ideology, or religious doctrine; we take no
position on outside issues. Our primary purpose is to abstain from
compulsive eating and
compulsive food behaviors and to carry the message of recovery through
the Twelve Steps of OA to those who still suffer.
The Twelve Steps are the heart of the OA recovery program. They offer a new way of life that enables the compulsive eater to live without the need for excess food. Their greatest importance
lies in the fact that they work! They enable compulsive eaters and
millions of otherTwelve-Steppers to lead happy, productive lives. They
represent the foundation upon which OA is built.
