Welcome to the <day> <time> closed meeting of Computer Gaming Addicts Anonymous. Hi, my name is <name> and I'm a computer gaming addict.

Please have your camera turned on.

We start the meeting with the serenity prayer in the first person:
Higher power, grant me the serenity to accept the thing I cannot change,
the courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.

Are there any newcomers here? You are a newcomer if you are in your first week of attending CGAA meetings. We ask that you introduce yourself by mentioning your first name? We only ask to welcome you.

Who would like to read the mission statement?
Computer Gaming Addicts Anonymous is a fellowship of people who support each other in recovering from the problems resulting from excessive game playing. C.G.A.A. is not affiliated with any political agenda, religion, or outside interests. Our single purpose is to abstain from gaming and to help others find freedom from the effects of gaming addiction. We have no membership requirements beyond the desire to stop gaming.

Our groups share their collective experience and the principles that helped them. Each of us is free to try out or disregard the suggestions of the program and other members. 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.

In CGAA we work on our recovery from computer gaming addiction.

In this meeting we introduce ourselves as computer/video gaming addicts. This is in compliance with our first tradition, which states: "Our common welfare should come first; personal recovery depends upon CGAA unity," and third tradition: "The only requirement for CGAA membership is a desire to stop computer/video gaming."

Who would like to read the 12 steps?
Who would like to read the 12 traditions?

If you gamed during the last 24 hours, we ask that you to sit back and listen during this meeting. After the meeting there's room to talk with those who stay.

Who would like to read the reading for today's meeting? (open reading in PDF reader and share window)

This is a step discussion meeting. We share experience, strength and hope, regarding applying the spiritual solutions to our common problem of computer gaming addiction. We focus our discussion on how we practice these principles in all our affairs.

Please refrain from naming specific games. Also, please refrain from cross talk; which is talking to specific persons or replying to what they shared. We share from the "I" person, using "we" is speaking for others, and using "you" is instructing somebody. Try to limit shares to five minutes when we have or are likely to have 15+ people.

The floor is now open to anyone who would like to share experience, strength and hope.
(approx. 5 minutes before the end of the meeting)
Thanks you all for sharing your experience, strength and hope.

As per our seventh tradition, each CGAA group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions. We have no dues or fees. If you are a member and would like to help with expenses, feel free to visit our webpage.

There are email contact lists for meeting locally, a WhatsApp group and YouTube channel

Who would like to read the milestones?
Please stick up your hand, or otherwise let it know to us when we arrive at what is appropriate to you.

Let's have a moment of silence for the still suffering gaming addict, inside and out of the rooms.

We close the meeting with the "we" form of the serenity prayer.
Higher power, grant us the serenity to accept the things we cannot change,
the courage to change the things we can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.

Let us hug each other (To hug one another, everyone type "hugs" into their screen or do something compassionate with your camera).
