Sitting in the Garage

“Attending meetings is not sufficient to get me recovered from compulsive eating any more than sitting in a garage gets me closer to being a Chevrolet.”  

The good news, however, is that I CAN recover from compulsive eating even if I can never become a car!  This is the hope that attending meetings provides to me.  I see others with my same disease who are living happy, joyous, and free.  It is in meetings that I hear their struggles and how they deal with them to stay abstinent.  It is in meetings that I learn how to WORK a program.  It is my responsibility to take what I hear in meetings and put it into action on my part.  This is how to LIVE program and get me recovered from compulsive eating.  I make no progress just simply going to meetings…I must take action!  Stop sitting in the garage and get to work!
