Group Helps Those with Compulsion to Work
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.
If you consider yourself a workaholic, there is a group that wants to help you break the addiction. It calls itself Workaholics Anonymous, and according to its website it has a twelve-step program adopted from Alcoholics Anonymous.
The group is for people who compulsively pile on more work until they burn out. One member in New York tells the Reuters News Service that is the addiction that society applauds.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to run off to a meeting.
You're listening to Morning Edition.
