12 Step 4 Today is a spiritual support group for those who are working a twelve step program for Compulsive Overeating or Food Addiction. Its intent is to offer added support to those who enjoy the daily messages from the book, "For Today". (To follow copyright guidelines, the only copied portion from "For Today" will be the first quote). The loop's vision is to support those who may not have a sponsor yet, but are eager to begin, who are in the process of working the steps and searching for a sponsor. The only requirement to join our loop is a desire to be free from compulsive eating. We can do together what we couldn't do alone! Welcome to 12 Step 4 Today! Welcome Home!
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: 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 2: 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 3: 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.
