"Chips & Lit"


“CHIPS” refers to the various keytags offered at meetings, in recognition of  periods of continuous sobriety from cocaine and all other mind-altering substances.   At most meetings, we offer keytags for 30, 60 & 90 days, as well as 6 months, 9 moths, 1 year, and 18 months of continuous sobriety.

More recently, CA has created a “1-week” key tag.  Some meetings are beginning to offer this key tag to give newcomers hope and inspiration to continue the program of recovery 🙂

Cocaine Anonymous

CA is non-profit, and as such, all books are sold at cost only.  Some of these are shown further below 

With permission, Cocaine Anonymous uses the AA’s “Big Book” as our textbook for recovery.  It contains the precise, clear-cut directions on how to recover from alcoholic (and drug) addiction, followed by many personal success stories of recovery.  At most CA meetings, the “Big Book” is offered to any member who wants the book right away but cannot yet afford it.  Easy payment options can made, so that the book can be taken home following the meeting.  In some cases, a copy of the Big Book can even be given free of charge to the person who is in need.  Speak to the chairperson at a meeting, before or after the meeting.

Cocaine Anonymous has it’s own library of recovery-based books available at cost.  A few of these are shown immediately below.

Also, there are pamphlets available at meetings, which are free for the taking.  These are listed further below, each with its contents available to read or even download, right here online.


Hope, Faith & Courage

This book, “Hope, Faith, and Courage – Stories and Literature from the Fellowship of Cocaine Anonymous”, is offered as testimony that any newcomer who has an honest desire to stop using, and is willing to make the effort, can recover.
