South Bay OA Young People
Do You Have A Problem With Food?
Overeaters Anonymous can help make your teen years some of the best years of your life. How? By sharing the experience, strength and hope of those who came before you and who were helped to overcome the problem we have in common -- compulsive overeating.
No matter how hard we tried on our own, we could not control our eating. In OA we found the help we needed to stop overeating and start feeling better about ourselves.
If you have a problem with food, give yourself the following quick quiz. Be honest -- you're doing this for YOU!
- Attend the Face-to-Face Young Person's meeting in the South Bay on Tuesdays at 7:00 PM at the United Methodist Church, 540 Main St., El Segundo, CA (enter off Mariposa St.) Map According to OA's Third Tradition, "The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop eating compulsively." Therefore, young people are welcome at all OA meetings.
- Overeater's Anonymous: A Kid's View is a booklet specifically for the young person aged 10 and younger. It illustrates OA's Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions in an easy-to-understand format for that age group. "If the way you eat often makes you feel bad, the steps in this booklet will help you like yourself more and be happier."
