OA’s Tools of Recovery: Action Plan

An action plan is the process of identifying and implementing attainable actions that are necessary to support our individual abstinence. Just like our plan of eating, it may vary widely among members and may need to be adjusted to bring structure, balance, and manageability into our lives.

Do you have an action plan?  Have you used an action plan in the past?  Do you discuss your action plan with your sponsor?

OA’s Nine Tools of Recovery

Call For Authors! Write for Letters of Hope

Share your experience, strength, and hope with your fellow members of OA.  Letters of Hope is accepting submissions.

Not sure what to write?  Consider sharing your story of what brought you to OA, how your sponsor or OA helped you through a particularly difficult time, or what you would tell a newcomer about OA.  Anything related to recovery through OA is appropriate.  OA and its members have been lifesavers for most-if not all-of us.  Sharing through Letters of Hope is a form of service – one of OA’s Tools of Recovery.

Please email any submissions or questions to our Letters of Hope chair, Joy, at oadallasweb@gmail.com.

OA’s Tools of Recovery: Literature

We read OA approved books, pamphlets, and Lifeline Magazine. Reading literature daily reinforces how to live the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions.

What is your favorite piece of OA literature?  How do you benefit from reading OA literature?  Are there pieces of OA literature that you haven’t read that you should give a try?
