Recovery from Depression
Does the way you eat make you feel depressed or low? Has life stopped feeling good and lost its meaning? Don’t know how to stop stress eating? Does your eating cause you to feel listless or numbed out? Does your relationship with food make you feel isolated from family, friends and loved ones? Find out how AEA members have used the Twelve Step programme to overcome the low feelings associated with addictive eating and go on to live joyful, positive lives.
These are the stories of how some of our members came to find a solution to their food related depression in Addictive Eaters Anonymous. This way of life is available to you, too. We suggest you read these stories of eating disorder recovery with an open mind. Focus on the similarities, rather than the differences. Whatever your problem with food, AEA can help.
Listen to an AEA member's experience of recovery
Our membership is diverse with people coming to the fellowship from a variety of backgrounds, and these stories represent the experience, strength and hope of individual AEA members. Any opinions expressed in these stories are those of the individual authors, and not necessarily those of AEA as a whole.
Please see our Meetings Page for details of face to face meeting times and venues. We also have regular AEA Web Events where AEA members share their experience, strength and hope online. Participants can join the web event from their phone, desktop, mobile and tablet devices. All are welcome. See details of the next AEA Web Event.
Our primary purpose is to recover from addictive eating and help others to achieve sobriety.
