Marijuana Anonymous Ireland (MA) have recently upgraded and moved their website, you can now find them at www.marijuana-anonymous.ie. Attending a self help support group is often the first positive step towards learning about recovery. You can read more about other self help addiction recovery support groups in Ireland here. The great thing about all the Twelve Step groups is that you can find and attend a meeting every single day.
MA is a twelve step self help group support for men and women who want to stop using Marijuana, cannabis, hash and related drugs and substances and recover from a Marijuana addiction.
At marijuana anonymous meetings people discuss their problems with marijuana, what they did to recover, and what life is like now. We have found that as a group we can achieve for ourselves results which, as individuals, we failed at repeatedly. – Marijuana Anonymous
Through their website you can find lots of information on self assessment, group support meetings, detoxing from Marijuana and Cannabis and other helpful supportive information.
MA Ireland have literature and pamphlet’s on their website For The Newcomer which provides information about twelve step meetings. They currently hold four online virtual meetings a week via ZOOM which are easily accessible and one outdoor meeting in Dublin on a Sunday at 3pm.
All marijuana anonymous meetings are autonomous and formats vary from meeting to meeting. Sometimes there is a speaker. Sometimes we study the Steps or other literature. Sometimes we start with a mindfulness meditation. Many meetings have a topic for discussion.
Taking the first step and attending a meeting or talking to an addiction counsellor could help change your life. Get lots of group and professional support in the early days of recovery to help you understand the addiction cycle and the recovery process.
