Something to Consider

Is it a “suggestion” or a “must” that we not substitute the words “food” for “alcohol” and “compulsive over-eater” for “alcoholic” when our OA meeting has a Big Book study?

In Remembrance, Rozanne S

Flame
We are deeply saddened to report that OA’s beloved founder, Rozanne S., passed away peacefully on January 16 at the age of 84. Rozanne began Overeaters Anonymous in California on January 19, 1960, and fulfilled her dream that it become an international organization. We are forever grateful to her for her vision, perseverance, and love, through which so many have found recovery from compulsive eating. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and loved ones during this difficult time. Cards may be sent in care of the World Service Office. More information can be found at OA.org.
