2016 Olympic Silver medalist Luvo Manyonga. From failed meth addict to silver medalist at the Olympic games — in less than two years.

If you’re searching for how to quit crystal meth, you’ve come to the right place. Here you will find a website full of information and, hopefully, some inspiration that will help you in quitting.

You’ll hear the odds are against you. You’ll hear outlandish statistics, that only a small percentage of us ever quit successfully. Cast that out of your mind.

You can quit.

As you read these very words, well over a million people have successfully quit crystal meth worldwide and are living drug-free lives. You can, too.

Life is meant to be much more than what you’re experiencing now.

If you’re interested in learning more about what to expect during the first year of recovery from ice, check out the excerpts from my book found on this site, then head over to my blog for an ongoing conversation about the full and free life beyond crystal meth and addiction.

As for the book, Quitting Crystal Meth — What to Expect & What to Do: A Handbook for the First Year of Recovery from Chrystal Methamphetamine, my advice is — buy it! (Yeah, I’m biased.) Or do not buy it. But do read it.

Here’s the big unkept secret: You don’t have to buy a paperback or kindle edition to read my book.

Over 80% of the book is available for free, here, on this very website.

With patience, optimism and self-deprecating humor—not to mention an authoritative tone from his insider’s knowledge—Sharp makes the entire experience of quitting and getting healthy seem not only possible but deeply alluring. A small book featuring an enormous amount of hard-won personal experience, calcifying into a commanding, reassuring guide for addicts to reclaim their lives.

Here’s what the book does: organize and present the information in a convenient and clear way — though it’s basically the same information you can read for free online. Just know it’s really not about selling books. It’s about getting the information out.

A note for those of you who are reading this to help and better understand a meth-addicted loved one: scroll through some of QCM’s Amazon Reader’s Reviews. I think you’ll find there are many family/friend readers who bought the book for themselves — so they might better relate to what their loved one was going through physically and emotionally. Hear what they have to say. But, if you are reading this out of concern for someone else (like an addicted loved one), please spend 90 seconds and click through to read this: If You Are Buying This Book for Someone Else.

So, again, buy or don’t buy the book. Doesn’t matter. But please, please do take a good look around my website. I hope it helps.
