Expressions of Hope is a collection of personal experiences from crystal meth addicts in recovery. This newly expanded and revised edition has been redesigned around the stages of the recovery process: personal stories of powerlessness and hopelessness before entering the rooms, working the program of recovery, application of the common tools and suggestions, and learning how to face life on life's terms in sobriety.
The selected stories, articles and readings were chosen to represent a wide range of topics, including physical health, intimate relationships (including marriage and children), becoming sober in prison (and reintegrating after being released), and even the economic crisis. Though the selections are diverse and were written by those in early recovery as well as those with long-term sobriety, the message conveyed throughout this book is that no matter how bleak life seems right now, there is always HOPE.
The books are available now at the low price of $8.00 per copy.Read More

Editorial Policy: The only requirement for publication is a desire to stop using. Submissions should exhibit this desire, should not glorify the use of drugs and alcohol or drug-driven sex, and respect the Twelve Traditions of CMA. The editor(s) will review all submissions. The preferred style for submissions is written prose, but we encourage authors to share experience, strength and hope in the style in which they feel most comfortable. Any submissions requiring major edits will be negotiated with the author. If the author and the editor reach an impasse, the Literature Committee will decide how to move forward on a case-by-case basis.
