The Reading Room

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.

 

 

Newcomer’s Meeting

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.

 

Creative in Recovery

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.

 

Welcome to MA Phone Meetings Website

Note: This website supports three separate MA groups each guided by its own Group Conscience.

Our Preamble (Who We Are, And Who We Are Not)

Marijuana Anonymous is a fellowship of people who share our experience, strength and hope with each other that we may solve our common problem and help others to recover from marijuana addiction.

The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop using marijuana. There are no dues or fees for membership. We are self-supporting through our own contributions. MA is not affiliated with any religious or secular institution or organization and has no opinion on any outside controversies or causes. Our primary purpose is to stay free of marijuana and to help the marijuana addict who still suffers achieve the same freedom. We can do this by practicing our suggested Twelve Steps of recovery and by being guided as a group by our Twelve Traditions.

Marijuana Anonymous uses the basic 12 Steps of Recovery founded by Alcoholics Anonymous, because it has been proven that the 12 Step Recovery program works!

Touch Tone Controls Tips & Tricks

Phone meetings have many advantages such as giving a participant the freedom to attend a meeting while driving, exercising, and doing other tasks or chores. However, with this freedom and flexibility comes challenges in the form of background noise.

Please, please, please be sure your phone is muted when you are not speaking. Thanks 😉  It is recommended that you use *6 to mute, but you can also use the mute on your phone – just pay attention that you could be double-muted. 

But, accidents do happen and people sometimes forget to re-mute their phones. For times when someone does leave their phone un-muted and the background noise becomes disruptive and distracting the host (a.k.a. chair, chairperson, or co-chair) has a few options. Continue reading
