“It is important to consider how the use of electronic media might impact our own or anyone else’s anonymity as we recover and help to carry the message of recovery offered by the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of Overeaters Anonymous.”


Social media is part of daily life for many people, and brings new opportunities for connecting with OA fellows and for carrying our message of recovery. But how do we balance that with the need to respect the 12 Traditions, particularly regarding personal anonymity?
