A morning of hope and support for anyone struggling or in relapse

Co-sponsored by the SFIG 12th Step Within Committee, the Saturday morning writing meeting, and the Saturday morning step/speaker/into action meeting

“We all need to be loved and accepted, not because we are abstinent, not because we are at goal weight, but for who we are. This is especially true of OA members who are still suffering. They have been in program for some time, perhaps for months, maybe even years, but either they have not yet attained abstinence or they are in relapse. When asked what helped them most, people who have gone through this painful experience agree on one thing: being loved and accepted – even when they were compulsively overeating, even when they were falling apart emotionally, even when they themselves felt hopeless and unlovable – was the key to their eventually loving and accepting themselves and from there, getting abstinent.”
