Tradition 7: Every NA Group ought to be fully self- supporting, declining outside donations.
Narcotics Anonymous is a 12 Step Recovery Program designed to aid recovery from the disease of addiction. Originally based on the Alcoholics Anonymous 12 Steps and 12 Traditions, we have only broadened their approach from alcohol to the disease of addiction: obsession and compulsion. This is a spiritual, not religious, program.
NA members, if you can, please donate to help support our website. Non-members, please do not donate.
Members: If this site helps meet your needs, please give a 7th Tradition donation to help Historical Significance continue providing this service.
LOL features speakers with multiple decades clean who were instrumental in the development of our beloved Fellowship.These honored speakers tell their stories and the parts played by others now gone. We hope that by recording these meetings, future members will be able to hear our history come alive.
The home group members of Historical Significance want to share our sense of excitement we have found in our recovery through studying the historic documents of N.A. We study current and past literature including the original rough drafts of our favorite texts to gain a sense of where we have come from.
Loving Our Long-Timers Meeting
Originally started in 2008 as outreach to carry an NA meeting to a hospitalized member in FL, teleconference meetings have grown to meet the needs of many members. The diversity of our membership is represented by hospitalized and home bound members including older members who can no longer get out, professional drivers on the road, geographically challenged members, parents who must stay home with children, victims of really bad storms who swell our meetings for a few days until the weather clears, members of smaller communities who are seeking more anonymity for gut level sharing and those who are simply seeking multiple flavors of recovery. NA teleconference meetings are a wonderful addition to a well-rounded recovery platform and can serve as life-saving outreach and are a great way to expand your support network nationally or even internationally. However, they are not a replacement for face-to-face meeting attendance. Attend your local NA.
How It Works: Check with your service provided so you don’t get excessive charges. These are long distance calls to landlines. Dial phone number and when prompted, enter access code and the pound (#) symbol. On some lines you are asked for your name and the # symbol again. You do not have to give your name, just enter #. You are then in the meeting. Press * and then 6 to mute and unmute your phone. A voice will tell you if you are muted or not. It is best to stay muted except to share or read. When you are muted you can hear everything but your background noise is cancelled out. Speakers and some Bluetooth cause echoing so don’t use them when you share. The Chairperson will give you any further instructions.
