Steps 1, 2, 3 Workshop Resources

Start the Steps, we recover together… The first three Steps will be introduced by having volunteer members share how they have worked and continue to work these Steps, and then participants will meet in smaller groups to form fellowship connections, share, and discuss the selected prompts from the MA 12 Step Workbook.

We believe in the importance of working all 12 Steps with the guidance of a Sponsor, a fellow sober addict who has some experience in recovery, and can help you one-on-one in this process.

Step 1 – Week One

We admitted we were powerless over marijuana, that our lives had become unmanageable. 

  • What were my feelings over time as I continued to use?
  • How have I been living “the fantasy of functionality”?
  • Am I ready to admit that I am powerless over marijuana and that my life has become unmanageable? Explain.

Step 2 – Week Two

Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity. 

  • Give some examples of repeating the same behaviors over and over again but expecting different results.
  • What is my concept of a Power greater than myself?
  • Has a lack of open-mindedness contributed to my reaching a bottom? Explain

Step 3 – Week Three

Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God, as we understood God.
