Recovery from Obesity


Are you always on diets but unable to stick to them? Are you preoccupied with your weight? Do you constantly think about food? Can’t figure out how to stop eating? Is your weight causing you health problems? Are you considering or have you had weight loss surgery? Find out how AEA members are finding relief from addictive eating, maintaining a healthy body weight and living happy, useful lives.


These are the stories of how some of our members came to find a solution to their obesity 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.

AEA Stories

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 online and 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.
