Anyone who’s had any experience with drugs, whether it’s personally or through a loved one, knows the tragic and transformative effects of abuse.
But it’s safe to say that most of those people will agree that Meth is a special drug – special in the horror that results from it.
From PBS’ Frontline:
What makes methamphetamine such an attractive high? Meth users report that after taking the drug they experience a sudden “rush” of pleasure or a prolonged sense of euphoria, as well as increased energy, focus, confidence, sexual prowess and feelings of desirability. However, after that first try, users require more and more of the drug to get that feeling again, and maintain it. With repeated use, methamphetamine exacts a toll on the mind and body, robbing users of their physical health and cognitive abilities, their libido and good looks, and their ability to experience pleasure.
