Our loop is a special place where relapsed compulsive overeaters can support each other in rebuilding their recovery. Here in confidentiality, we help each other with the special challenges that relapse presents. We can share our struggles freely in an atmosphere of acceptance and understanding. Although we have a special focus on the issues of relapse, in the spirit of Tradition 3 we welcome everyone seeking recovery from compulsive eating who wishes to join. We can do together what we have not been able to do alone! Welcome toRecovery 4 Relapse! Welcome Home!
We are fellow sufferers in a self-help loop, not mental health or medical professionals. Members are responsible for their own recovery and mental health. Messages represent individual members, not OA or 12step4coes.
Our email loop has some basic guidelines that all members must follow. Please, read the following guidelines and be sure to follow them when you begin to share on our loop:
Guideline 1: This loop is confidential. Messages can only be read as private email and must be treated confidentially by all members. No messages will be posted on the website.
Guideline 2: On this loop we share our experience, strength, hope and inspiration with fellow compulsive overeaters. Our purpose is to encourage, upbuild and strengthen our recovery from compulsive overeating, through sharing positive messages of truth, courage and the overcoming of adversity. Feel free to share both your problems and their solutions. Please remember to always use courtesy and respect.
Guideline 3: Although ours is a spiritual program, each member of our groups interprets this spiritual side in his/her own way. Therefore, in order to protect the spiritual program of all our members, in general 12step4coes intergroup loops and meetings we use the terms God, God of my understanding, or higher power, when referring to our spiritual work.
Guideline 4: Negative messages that attack or put down other members of this loop are called "flaming" and are not allowed. If you have something personal to discuss with someone, please email them privately. Members who choose to "flame" on our loop will lose their privilege to share on the loop. Thanks for helping make our loop a safe place for all of us to share.
