WHAT IS COMPULSIVE EATERS
CEA-H.O.W. is a
Fellowship of men and women who meet to share their experience,
strength and hope with one another in order that they may solve
their common problem and help those who still suffer to recover
from compulsive eating. HOW meetings offer a disciplined and
structured approach to the compulsive eater who accepts the 12
Steps and 12 Traditions as a program of recovery.
Our primary purpose is to stop
eating compulsively..and we welcome in fellowship and friendly
understanding all those who share our common problem.

WHAT CEA-H.O.W. OFFERS
Acceptance - of you as you are now, as you
were, as you will be.
Understanding - of the problem you face now
and share, almost cetainly, with others in the group.
Communication - Since we find that we identify
with each other, communication becomes the natural result of our
mutual understanding and acceptance.
Relief - having found acceptance,
understanding and communication with others, we found relief from
our illness and help toward a new self-acceptance and
Power - by the acceptance and understanding of
oneself, by the practice of the twelve-step recovery program, by
the belief in a power greater than oneself, by the support and
companionship of the group, a door is opened to a new way of
IS CEA-H.O.W. FOR YOU?
Only you can decide that question...no one else can make this
decision for you. We who are now in CEA-H.O.W. have found a way of
life which enables us to live without the need for excess food. We
believe that compulsive eating is a progressive illness...one that,
like alcoholism and some other illnesses, can be arrested.
Remember, there is no shame in admitting you have a problem; the
most important thing is to do something about it.
