You are not alone…with a hundred of your closest relatives or with a goldfish for company. Please, please, please reach out to others if the food issues, family problems, or loneliness want to pull you back to your obsessions. Use phone numbers, text messages, email, program literature or your Higher Power freely and often when the need arises. Your contact may well be the boost the receiver needs on a day that often presents issues to all of us.
Besides that, there’s help a phone call away. OA hosts Phone Marathons on all Major Holidays. Call in and join a phone meeting with your fellows.5:45 a.m. CST – 12:00 a.m. CST.
A phone meeting every hour — the same phone number and pin. Generally the marathons are from 8 a.m. until midnight Eastern time

Holiday Marathon Meetings work around regularly scheduled meetings, starting at 8 a.m. EST and lasting until midnight. We recognize the diversity of our members and although we don’t endorse any particular holiday, we want to support our members who do celebrate those days.
