Welcome Back & Members in Relapse

This member shares recovery from numerous relapses on the anniversary of her last binge in 1983. Welcome Back had special meaning for her as it was the first OA literature addressing recovery from relapse. Members in Relapse offers practical suggestions from relapse survivors on what helped them feel supported. Topics: relapse is not a failure; willpower is not enough; a food plan without Steps is a diet; getting past past black and white thinking and perfectionism; abstaining in spite of life challenges; one hour of abstinence a week at the meeting is a start; call even if bingeing; getting help with reading and writing.
