Day by day, as they work the Steps, newcomers in EDA find their eating disorders weakening: the strangle- hold gradually loosens. Our recovery grows with our increasing reliance on ideas that hold more power to provide peace and perspective than our eating disorders ever did. As we learn to trust these ideas, our consciousness or awareness of a Higher Power or higher purpose deepens and expands. Our deliberate and thoughtful efforts to align our actions accordingly begin to engage us more and more. It does not matter whether our Higher Power or purpose—God or a greater context of our own understanding—agrees with any- one else’s conception. What matters is that we, individually, come to a point of acceptance that there is a Power or purpose greater than we are, and that we can trust it to help us overcome our eating disorders.
EATING DISORDERS ANONYMOUS (EDA)
EDA is a Twelve-Step fellowship of individuals who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problems and help others to recover from their eating disorders. People can and do fully recover from having an eating disorder. The only requirement for membership is a desire to recover from an eating disorder.
