(You are welcome to reproduce these podcasts so long as you do not sell them for more than the cost of reproducing them.)

Please note that this is a new link.  The old link is no longer valid.

Alternatively, you can go to www.xa-speakers.org and search for “oabb” and download the same files from that site.

Or go to http://storiesofrecovery.org/OA.htm  and download the same files from that site.

The documents on the left are available as PDF files for viewing (just click) or downloading (right click, and save).  They may be distributed freely so long as they are not changed.


The documents represent the views of a number of Overeaters Anonymous (OA) members who use the Big Book as a set of directions for working the Twelve Steps.


The Step 4 forms and the Step 11 form were originally produced by Blaine D. of Winnipeg, Canada, who has graciously consented to their use; they have been slightly modified.  


Thanks to Howard W. of Minneapolis, who has made the Step 4 and Step 8 forms computer interactive using the latest version of Adobe Reader.  You can fill them out on your computer and then print them.  Be careful not to overwrite the original once it’s on your computer.

This is the latest version (January 2014) of a Step Study book.  You are welcome to download it and reproduce it, so long as it is not changed and is not sold for more than the cost of reproducing it.

Note for Internet Explorer users:

If you’re not able to download the documents, your Security setting is probably set too high.  Go to Tools, Internet Options, Privacy, and either allow content from the www.oabigbook.info, or change your security setting to Medium.  That should solve your problem.
