I'm from the USA and I'm a compulsive over eater. I'm 19 years old, and I joined OA yesterday. Basically I'm looking for a sponser, someone around my own age to relate too. If anyone could possibly help me somehow, please let me know.

I'm not your age; I'm not a woman, and I'm not in OA, but I did want to say welcome to the forum and congratulations on deciding to travel the path of recovery.
I say recovery because it doesn't matter if it is nicotine, food, sex, alcohol, drugs or even work - addiction is addiction - and it's good you are reaching out.
There will be other people along who know the site much better than I and will be able to give you more appropriate info than my mere welcome. I'm sorry I couldn't have been more help; but support is here for you.
best wishes - and keep at it.
With the GIFT of recovery...The sky's the limit...

I too wanted to say welcome to SR.
Im Sharon and Im an Alcoholic. Being
in AA, Ive been able to pass on my own
experiences, strengths and hopes with
others struggling with addiction in order
to keep my own sobriety and live a happier
joyous, freer life in recovery.
Having the tools and knowledge of my
addiction to alcohol, ive been able to
remain sober for the past 22 yrs of many
one days at a time added together to get
me where I am today.
Listening, learning, absorbing all we can
is a perfect way to begin building a solid
foundation in recovery. One step at a time.

Depression is not a sign of weakness. It is a sign of being too strong for too long.
