Literature is one of the 9 Tools of recovery. We study and read OA-approved pamphlets; OA-approved books, such as Overeaters Anonymous (Second Edition), The Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of Overeaters Anonymous and For Today; and we read Lifeline, our monthly magazine on recovery. We also study the book Alcoholics Anonymous, referred to as the ‘Big Book,’ to understand and reinforce our program. Many OA members find that when read daily, the literature further reinforces how to live the Twelve Steps.
