Crystal Meth Addiction
The Meth problem has become so severe that it is often referred to not as a meth addiction, but a meth obsession. Crystal Meth immediately releases dopamine, which induces the cravings. This drug is one of the most often used drugs globally. Whether in powder or rock form, Crystal Meth has immediate euphoric effects and also increases energy. Along with the fact that Meth is fairly easy to make and acquire, many people have made it their drug of choice.
You can snort, inject, mix in with drinks, or smoke Crystal Meth, but regardless of how you get it into your system, the affects are instantaneous. There is a loss of inhibitions, an incredible feeling of euphoria, and amazing increased energy. The combined affect of the drug has no doubt contributed to its popularity. There also are some telltale signs that generally identify Meth users after time. One of these is scabs and sores on the face. This is caused by the sensation of something on their face (referred to as meth lice), which makes the addict pick and scratch at it. Eventually this leads to many sores and scabs on the faces. Also, because Meth dries out the skin, users can have a shallow look about them. A dropped jaw is also another side effect of using meth. Unfortunately, sustained Meth use also can lead to child neglect and crime.
The effects of Meth are long lasting (up to 24 hours), which also makes it appealing to many users. Heroin and other drugs tend to only last for a couple of hours, depending on the dosage, can last longer. The problem is, Meth never, ever leads to good things. There are many tragic stories, but never good stories concerning Crystal Meth. Meth drug addiction has reached pandemic stages and it is a global concern. It does not matter how the abuser chooses to get the meth into their system it will lead to trouble. If you suspect a loved one has been using Meth, seek help immediately. If you are addicted to Meth, get help now. Things will go from bad to worse. There are no happy endings with Crystal Meth, only tragedies. End the suffering now by getting into a good drug rehab and getting help. It is possible to beat Crystal Meth and there is a happy life ahead for those who do. Avoid becoming another Crystal Meth statistic and instead become a success story.
