Do you imagine there are marijuana addicts in your area who may benefit from an MA Phone meeting?
Linked below is a flyer for the World Phone Meetings group that you can print (perhaps on green colored paper) and stick to bulletin boards at treatment facilities, jails, hospitals, head shops or where ever else you feel is appropriate. (That said, you should generally seek approval as unapproved flyers often get pulled down rather quickly.)
The group MA World Phone Meetings has a meeting called The Reading Room at noon EST on Fridays. These meetings are on the phone line, 1.712.775.7035 in the USA or lookup your country in this list of international phone numbers. The access code is 679941#.
This meeting draws from MA literature (Life With Hope, Approved Pamphlets, and the newsletter A New Leaf) to inspire sharing our experience, strength and hope that we may better understand our common challenges and solutions to those challenges.
The new group MA World Phone Meetings has added a new meeting called The Newcomer’s Meeting at noon EST on Wednesdays. These meetings are on a new phone line, 1.712.775.7035 in the USA or lookup your country in this list of international phone numbers. The access code is 679941#.
This meeting is a safe meeting space for people new to recovery. We cover the basics of the first three steps on your journey into a new life with hope.
We encourage participation in recovery by asking those newest to the program to share first.
The new group MA World Phone Meetings has added a new meeting called Creative in Recovery at noon EST on Tuesdays. These meetings are on a new phone line, 1.712.775.7035 in the USA or lookup your country in this list of international phone numbers. The access code is 679941#.
The Creative in Recovery meeting is geared to those of us that found pot to help us with our creativity. Once we stopped using pot as a catalyst, we thought the creative process was gone. For most of us that have experienced the recovery process, that creativity has returned exponentially. As in most things, we take it easy, and take it as it comes. So our charge to you all that are creative, is to stick around and observe the creativity rebound.
