Crystal meth is an extremely powerful man made stimulant drug that's abused by people throughout the United States. Unfortunately crystal meth is very addictive and not only destroys your health but destroys your life. So many people have lost their lives to this addictive stimulant and others have lost their health, spirit to live, and relationships because of this intense addiction. Finding supportive and understanding people for individuals' working toward recovery isn't always easy but Crystal Meth Anonymous always has their doors open welcoming new people, and members support your efforts to stay clean.

Crystal Meth Anonymous (CMA) was created in 1994 so that people recovering from crystal meth addiction had a place to go where they could be comfortable sharing their experiences with others. Today Crystal Meth Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women helping each other stay clean, maintain sobriety and helping new members understand the nature of their crystal meth illness.

CMA only requires their members to have the 'desire to stop using', there are no other requirements and the meetings are free. They support themselves through their own contributions. There are no membership lists either, members go by their first names only and no one is in charge or keeps track of who comes and who doesn't.

CMA advocates a twelve step program of recovery for spiritual growth and it doesn't matter what religious background or belief that a person has. The first step in CMA's recovery is the addict admitting that they are powerless over crystal meth and their lives have become unmanageable.

Because crystal meth addiction is a progressive illness there is no cure but it can be managed. The way a CMA member manages their crystal meth addiction is by attending meetings, listening, sharing and working the twelve steps. This gives their members the strength and hope they need to stay clean and sober, helping themselves with their own sobriety also helps others with theirs.

Not sure if Crystal Meth Anonymous is the right support group for you? Read more about CMA, get educated and unstand what CMA is all about. Important information you should know about CMA is they commit to the Twelve Steps of Crystal Meth Anonymous, the Twelve Traditions of Crystal Meth Anonymous and the Twelve Concepts of Crystal Meth Anonymous.

New members are welcome at all times at Crystal Meth Anonymous, they benefit from listening to others talk about how they achieved their sobriety and how much better their lives are now. Many crystal meth users are apprehensive at first attending CMA meetings but they shouldn't be. No one judges you, every member has been where you're at right now, everyone was a little uneasy at the first meeting, and it's your choice to come back. There's no pressure, if you don't want to talk and share, you don't have to. CMA is completely anonymous; information is never given out so no one ever knows you attend Crystal Meth Anonymous Meetings unless you tell them.

Twelve Step recovery programs have helped millions of people recover from their addictions and Crystal Meth Anonymous can help you too. Find a meeting in your area; you can have the freedom so many other people have found taking it one day at a time!

    crystal meth is a heck of a drug to end up addicted to. I don't honestly remember how I started, but clearly I was being stupid and reckless because I ended up addicted to a drug that was ravaging my body, sucking my health out of me and threatening my life with every single hit that I took.

    I lied to myself. I lied to others. I stole. I put everyone and everything on the line and I nearly died from the experience. I needed help, but I wouldn't admit it to myself. I lied and lied and lied - and I was my biggest victim, because I told myself that I was okay. It wasn't until an intervention was staged in my honor that I was forced to look in the mirror and realize that no, not everything was okay. I needed so much help it hurt.

    Crystal meth anonymous played an essential role in my recovery and I will forever be thankful for it. Being with other people that were going through the same exact thing as me really helped. I forged new friendships and began to better understand what I was going through by listening to their stories. I learned all about addiction and realized that I needed to overcome this on my own, but that I should never turn down help from my friends and loved ones, the community and my support groups. I love my new, clean and sober life, and I will never let drugs get in the way of my health or happiness ever again.

    When I realized that crystal meth was ruining my life, I knew I needed help. However, I thought that only rich people got to recover from addiction, and I'm far from wealthy. I thought that the only help out there consisted of expensive spa-like rehabs that I could never afford, until one day I stumbled across an ad online for Crystal Meth Anonymous. I checked out the website.

    That entire afternoon I debated if I should go to a Crystal Meth Anonymous meeting. I was worried that I would be judged, but then I realized that everyone at CMA had a first meeting and I decided to go. I'm so happy that I did because my life has never been the same since. I was welcomed with kindness and support. There was no pressure to talk, but I decided to share a bit about myself. Although I felt a little uneasy, the people at CMA just seemed easy to talk to. They seemed to understand.

    I've been clean and sober now for almost 90 days. If I can make it one more week I'll get my 90-day coin. A week is a long time, though, so I'm taking it just one day at a time. I'm calling my sponsor every day and I'm going to a meeting every day. At first I thought that was overkill, but my sponsor encouraged me to go to 90 meetings in 90 days to set myself up for success. She's been clean for almost 25 years, so I'm going to keep listening to her advice.
