Welcome to Secular Overeaters Anonymous, a home for atheists, agnostics, and freethinkers in OA.
The purpose of this website is to offer identification, community, and support to those members of Overeaters Anonymous who want to get and stay abstinent without adopting a belief in God. The insistence that a faith-based approach is the only way to recover from compulsive overeating is not only untrue, but can be harmful when pushed on those for whom a belief in a supernatural being is not a good fit.
There IS a place for atheists, agnostics, and freethinkers in Overeaters Anonymous. You're NOT doing anything wrong if you're attempts to connect with a god of your understanding haven't worked. It is OKAY if you believe that compulsive overeating is not a spiritual malady.
There are many atheists, agnostics, and freethinkers in Overeaters Anonymous, but we can be difficult to find. By providing a list of secular OA meetings, articles, podcasts, literature, and more, this website hopes to make finding us a bit easier.
Welcome to Overeaters Anonymous, welcome home.
