« Big Book page 544 | Main | Surrender of bread as side or meal »



I am on the 90 day program of OA and have given up sugar and flour. Today is only day 37 for me but I feel an amazing lack of cravings. Not that it wasn't hard but not as hard as I thought it might be. I'd encourage anyone to try this. Thanks to my sponsor and my HP for guidance and patience.


Thank you for your honesty. Sometimes it is so hard to be willing to be willing, if you know what I mean. . .


Gwen, I never heard of 90 days of OA until two weeks ago at a meeting. I don't know much about it. In my area the HOW people and the grey sheeters are the ones with very strict food plans and meeting rules. I may have cut out all the white stuff, but I hope not.

Sarah, I know what you mean. I spend a lot of time asking for the willingness to be willing. I've bookmarked your blog. Can't wait to read through your archives.

I found the willingness during my meeting last night. I shared my struggle. Then as I listened I got it. My sponsor was there so we talked and I'm adding bread as side dish or meal to my abstinence list. I can still have sandwiches or pizza, but for now (today) I will not eat dinner rolls, biscuits or bread and butter. So far so good today.


Wierd how bread becomes a binge food. And it's not that strange to think life won't be worth living without your binge foods. We've all been there. TYFS
