Temporary Sponsors: Newcomer’s First Twelve Days

Consider being a temporary sponsor for Newcomers!

What is the purpose of the First Twelve Days in OA?

• To help newcomers, returning OA members, and other members learn about the OA Twelve Step recovery program by using this personal, short-term introduction to Overeaters Anonymous.
• To help sponsees learn how the OA recovery program might help them to stop hurting themselves with food.
• To help members who may be ready to sponsor but are reluctant to do so. This is an opportunity for a member to help a newcomer in a very structured way and to experience what it might be like to be a regular sponsor.

The new Temporary Sponsors: Newcomers’ First Twelve Days is now posted online. This is new Conference-approved literature.

Navigating the OA Bookstore

Literature is an important tool for recovery! Some folks have reported challenges finding specific resources on the official OA Bookstore, so….

Here’s a guide with some quick links to key resources.

Did you know that OA even has some resources available for digital download or on mp3 files or audio CD’s?

In addition, if you like to use an e-reader, Amazon and Barnes and Noble have some books available in e-reader format. Some books are available in the library, too.

Don’t forget that public information/public outreach materials are available in the Intergroup Office in the plastic file drawers on top of the file cabinets. Let’s all reach out!
