Wherever you are in the world, AEA can help


While some of the face-to-face meetings are in recess we have moved to hold regular weekly meetings in an online format.  These AEA online meetings can be accessed from either your phone, desktop, mobile or tablet device.

Anyone, from anywhere can attend any one of these meetings.  All are welcome.  To join a meeting via Zoom, click on the link below at the destination time.  Please access a Time Zone Converter if you are outside the destination of the meeting time. 


If you would like information about how to dial in by telephone or for any further help joining an AEA online meeting please email

Anonymity in Online AEA Meetings

Anonymity is an important tradition of Twelve Step Fellowships.  For newcomers though this could be daunting.  If you would like to protect your anonymity please feel free to join the meeting without video.

If you are struggling and can’t find a meeting to join please check the meeting list and call your local number or email us on

AEA Web Event

Once a month, we also have a worldwide AEA Web Event where AEA members all come together to share their experience, strength and hope online. All are welcome. See details of next AEA Web Event on Events page.

Our primary purpose is to recover from addictive eating and help others to achieve sobriety.
