Methamphetamine is a dangerous illicit drug that can affect the body in a number of ways.
Often times the signs of meth addiction can be difficult to identify. One of the most important steps in the recovery journey is understanding the signs, symptoms and side effects of meth addiction. Due to the psychoactive properties, false confidence, and sense of happiness, people who try methamphetamine quickly develop a desire to continue using. Some users state that they were hooked on meth after they try it once.
Spotting a meth user is actually not a difficult thing to do. In fact, it might be easier to spot a meth user than people who use other types of drugs. It definitely depends on the level of use and how long the person has been using though.
Methamphetamine is not the number one drug that is abused in most countries, but it is one of the most addictive and one of the most destructive. Meth is most often a white to light brown crystalline powder. It may also be found in clear chunky crystals that resemble broken pieces of ice or shards of glass. Methamphetamine can be found in liquid form as well. Methamphetamine can be swallowed, snorted, injected or smoked.
