5 Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry the message to compulsive overeaters and to practice these principals in all our affairs *********** Steps are there for suicide prevention

6 Key Word: Service **************** Promise: Freedom from the lack of purpose The steps are for suicide prevention

7 Our real purpose is to fit ourselves to be of maximum service to God and the people about us. Big Book pg. 77

8 HP doesnt call those who qualify; He qualifies those He calls.

9 Service is the rent we pay to be on this earth. ********* We are wounded healers.

10 Then do it

13 Setting boundaries is not about setting up brick walls. ****** Assertive vs. aggressive

14 Besides, we have stopped fighting anybody or anything. We have to! (BB, pg. 103) ************** Principles before personalities

15 If we are not of service to ourselves; We cannot be of service to others.

16 If we keep doing what we have always done; we will get what we have always gotten. ************ Translation: if nothing changes…nothing changes!

17

18 Trust HP… Clean house… Help another overeater

19

20 This is a disease of isolation. (we care list) ********* We may be the only Big Book someone will ever see.

21

22 When all else fails, follow directions. ******* Keep on going. If you run into a brick wall; turn left. (anon)

23 Tradition #8 OA should remain ever nonprofessional, but our service centers may employ special workers. ************ Traditions are there for homicide prevention

24 We use tradition #8 not to work step #12, but to help the 12 th step work better for us. (AA, 12x12) *********** The money motive is the wrong motive. (AA 12x12)

25 You cannot keep what you dont give away. ******** We give freely that which we have been given for free.

26 Any form of service that helps reach a fellow sufferer adds to the quality of our own recovery. ******** Members can give service by getting to meetings, putting away chairs, putting out literature and talking to newcomers. ******** Beyond the group level, a member can serve as intergroup representative, committee chair, region representative or Conference delegate. ********** As OAs responsibility pledge states: Always to extend the hand and heart of OA to all who share my compulsion; for this, I am responsible.

27 If no one steps up; perhaps it does not need to be done. ************ Have problems getting people to help in your meeting?.... Time for a group inventory? (pgs , OA 12X12) *************** Old timers: put the keys, checkbook, &/or format on table as you leave.

28 To find or be a sponsor outside of your town: lists ( and..speaker downloads) ******* This presentation/notes will be at

29 We grow spiritually when we sponsor someone else into the fellowship. (Big Book) (green dot)

30 Dear HP, Fill my mouth with worthwhile stuff, and nudge me when I have said enough!

31 Bylaws, concepts, traditions) Job descriptions (board, reps, coordinators) Folders for each person. Website, phone, newsletter, sponsor database, etc. Mentoring (folders)

32 Support/ attend rural &/or small groups. ************* Sponsor/sponsoree data base on intergroup website. **************** Speaker Recordings/podcasts? ********** 12 step within 12/12/13
