I'm David, The Recovery Group's message board coordinator. I'm really glad that you reached out and found us - you're not alone. There are compulsive eaters around the world working the OA 12 Step program of recovery and using online resources like those offered here at The Recovery Group (TRG). Your message was not long, and I personally think that hitting bottom is the best place from where to start the OA journey.
You might want to join our Newcomers Orientation workshop which begins on the first day of every month. Here you will learn about the basics of the OA 12 program, and resources available to you. To join the next round, just send a blank email to: OANewcomersemail@example.com
Another outlet for many compulsive overeaters (and undereaters) are online meetings. You can find an online meeting for compulsive eaters here: http://www.starchat.net/chat/?chan=OARecovery - the meetings last for an hour and take place at 12, 3, 6 and 9 - AM and PM - (Eastern USA times).
I just checked again, and my link works: http://www.starchat.net/chat/?chan=OARecovery
If this link is NOT working for you, then the might be an issue with JAVA on your computer, and you may have to run an update for this.
Another option is downloading free software (really free with no ads!!!) to run the chat room. It's called "STARMIRC", and you can find it on the bottom left hand side of this page: http://www.starchat.net/starchat.php
Hope this helps,
