Addictive Eaters Anonymous

Addictive Eaters Anonymous (AEA) is a Twelve Step programme for food addicts who have struggled with overeating, undereating, anorexia, bulimia or weight control through excessive exercise or dieting.

Together, we have found a solution through a programme modelled on the principles of Alcoholic Anonymous. Some members have been practicing Twelve-Step recovery for more than 30 years.

Everyone is welcome. There are no fees. We are not a weight loss organisation, nor are we associated with any other entity.

Our primary purpose is to share with other addictive eaters in the hope they too might find a solution.

Addictive Eaters Anonymous Preamble

Addictive Eaters Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from addictive eating.

The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop addictive eating.
There are no dues or fees for AEA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions.

AEA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organisation or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes.
Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other addictive eaters to achieve sobriety.
