This week, we continued our discussion on abstinence and surrender.

We had a very lively discussion on “What is abstinence in OA?”

We read up to page 9 in the Abstinence Presentation Handout.

Notes that I took during our meeting:

We discussed that will power will not bless us with the gift of abstinence. We have to surrender to our food plan.

We talked about the importance of using all the tools, which provide us with the discipline and structure necessary to surrender to a food plan and work a program of recovery.

We read pages  100 – 102 out of the AA Big Book which discussed the importance of staying in fit spiritual condition to that we can be of maximum service to God and other people.

“Assuming we are spiritually fit, we can do all sorts of things alcoholics are not supposed to do… Do not think of what you will get out the occasion. Think of what you can bring to it. Our job now is to be at the place where we can be of maximum helpfulness to others.”

We discussed surrendering to a food plan, healthy eating behaviors and body image and weight.

Next week, we will continue reading this pamphlet and then read the other documents that were posted.

Below are the documents.

Some people were not able to access the YouTube video by Bill D. on Surrender. Below is a link to the MP3 that I uploaded onto our media fire account.

I am so grateful to be sharing this journey with all of you!

Thank you all for sharing your experience, strength and hope.
