Overeaters Anonymous - Carmen

Thursday, 1 December 2022 - 1:00pm to Thursday, 8 December 2022 - 2:00pm
Overeaters Anonymous

Carmen grew up in Germany in a family where there was alcohol abuse and violence. In her adult life, she developed a compulsion to control her eating and fell into a pattern of food restriction followed by bingeing. Carmen found herself preoccupied with food and when she realised it had become a problem began to look for help. A therapist's advice to eat in moderation did not work for her but through the support of Overeaters Anonymous and an understanding of the addictive nature of her relationship with food, Carmen found freedom from her compulsion.

If you are having difficulty with compulsive overeating you might like to contact Overeaters Anonymous. You can find them at oa.org.au. All meetings welcome newcomers and the only requirement for OA membership is the desire to stop eating compulsively.

There are meetings listed on the website at oa.org.au/meetings - these may be face-to-face, online or hybrid meetings.
