Marijuana is the most commonly used drug throughout the United States, there are around 104 million Americans aged 12 years and older that have at least tried marijuana. Many people have found themselves addicted to marijuana and need support in order to recover from their dependency.
Marijuana Anonymous (MA) can offer you a life with hope and you can begin to live again through the Twelve Steps of Marijuana Anonymous and the Twelve Traditions of Marijuana Anonymous. Men and women come together sharing their strengths, hopes and experiences with each other while recovering from marijuana addiction. When people come together and they share the same addiction they're able to understand what the other person is going through. They learn from each other and help one another at the same time.
The only requirement for membership that MA has is the 'desire to stop using marijuana'. It doesn't cost anything because there are no dues or fees. Marijuana Anonymous is a self-supporting fellowship and this is done through their-own contributions, not through membership fees. Members of Marijuana Anonymous want to stay free of marijuana use and they want to help other marijuana addicts find the same freedom.
The basic 12 Steps of Recovery was founded by Alcoholics Anonymous and the reason that MA uses these same basic steps is because it's a proven fact that they work. The 12 Step Recovery Program has worked for thousands of people and they will work for you too. All you need is the desire to stop using marijuana.
You have nothing to lose and everything to gain from attending an MA meeting.
Marijuana addiction is a progressive illness that quite often leads to other drug addictions which includes alcohol for many people. I understand that admitting you're addicted to marijuana isn't always 'just that simple', sometimes people honestly aren't sure. View the Marijuana Anonymous Questionnaire then you can ask yourself the 12 questions to help you determine if you have a problem or not. If your answer is 'yes' to any of the questions you might have a problem with marijuana and MA members are there to help and support you if and when you need them.
Marijuana Anonymous meeting are just that, anonymous. Whatever is said at the meeting never leaves the meetings. There are 2 forms of MA meetings for individuals seeking support and recovery which are Marijuana Anonymous Land Meetings and Marijuana Anonymous Online Meetings. There are 8 Online Meetings each week and all that's asked is that people respect the etiquette of these meetings.
Marijuana Anonymous also offers information and suggestions for family members and friends of marijuana addicts. This way you can understand a little bit about the program and maybe find answers to some of the questions you may have.
