egos 'r' us format

Meeting begins @5:30pm

Welcome to the "Egos 'R' Us meeting of Narcotics Anonymous.

My name is ( _____ ) and I am an addict. This is a CLOSED meeting.

Anyone with the desire to stop using is welcome.
There are open meetings which the general public may attend listed on the website STATECOLLEGENA.COM.

There is only one must in NA, that no drugs, paraphernalia and/or weapons be on your person while at this meeting. This is for the protection of our members, fellowship, and our meeting place. We ask that any such items be removed, but please return because we want you to be a part of this meeting.

May we open with a moment of silence to remember why we are here, followed by The Addicts Prayer

(My gratitude speaks when I care and when I share with others the NA way that no addict seeking recovery need ever die.)

Are there any announcements?

Please take a moment to silence your cell phone

Can we please have Who is an Addict?

Thanks to everyone for reading.

Is this anyone's first time at this meeting? Please introduce yourself with your first name only.

I would like to remind everyone to be considerate of others when sharing. Please stay on a recovery-oriented topic and limit the length of time you share to allow others the opportunity to share their recovery with us.

Does anyone have a problem that they may use over today?

The format for this meeting is Open Discussion. I will open the meeting to anyone who wishes to share, then we will go around the room to the RIGHT of the person who starts us off. The meeting will go until we run out of time. The meeting is now open to whomsoever would like to start us off, following the moment of awkward silence.

(NA has no fees or dues but we do have expenses. If you've got it please give if, if you don’t, don't worry about it.

This meeting practices the concept of a Home Group. A Home Group is a group you pick to become involved in. There is a pamphlet called "The Group" on the table, feel free to pick it up or talk to (Home Group members) after the meeting.

Is anyone celebrating an anniversary?

Will someone read Just for Today?

Please join us in closing the meeting with the "WE" version of the Serenitah prayer.
