What can I expect? What can I do?

Computer Gaming Addicts Anonymous is a fellowship of people who support each other in recovering from the problems resulting from excessive playing of computer and video games.  C.G.A.A. is not affiliated with any political agenda, religion, or outside interests. Our single purpose is to abstain from video gaming and to help others find freedom from compulsive gaming.

Our groups share their collective experience and the principles that helped them, but C.G.A.A. has no dogma, no teachings, no gurus, and no rules. We have no membership requirements beyond the simple desire to stop video gaming. We welcome all who wish to recover from the destructive effects of obsessive compulsive gaming.

Our members generally do not advise each other. We share personal experience, strength and hope, and are free to try out or disregard the suggestions of the program and other members.  Our members use a variety of tools, including a Twelve Step program of recovery.

Our meetings are run entirely by recovering members who volunteer their time in the spirit of service. We have no professionals and no affiliation with any professional or government services.  Our groups are financed by voluntary contributions from members and accept no outside funding.
