Big Book Forms
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 any PDF 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.
