Crystals to Help with Addiction.

Q. Are there crystals to help with addiction, or that can help me with, or better still, recover from addiction?


A. Amethyst is said to be a stone of spirituality and transformation. Also, I believe that most twelve-step programs recognize it is as “the sobriety stone”.

Amethyst derives its name from the Greek word, amethusos, meaning not drunk. According to an ancient myth, Bacchus turned a young maiden into a stone statue, and then in remorse, he poured wine onto the statue, staining it purple and creating Amethyst. Thereafter: allegedly drinking from an Amethyst Goblet would prevent the drinker from being fraught by the drink’s spirit. Today all those trying to overcome any addictions, especially alcohol addiction, may use the healing powers of Amethyst as an aid for dealing with addictions.

Amethyst calms your mind and encourages connection with your spiritual or real self. It also helps to replace anxiety and confusion with calmness and clarity. It fosters your intuition, your feelings and your values. This ancient detoxifier helps to deal with compulsive and obsessive behaviour related to alcohol, drugs, tobacco, food, sex, and other addictions.

Amethyst is wonderful calming crystal for those whose addictions lead to them being overworked, overstressed, or overwhelmed. Many people also sleep with an Amethyst under their pillow for this reason.
