The Ups and Downs of Meth
I tried meth to lose weight. All the weight loss one reads is true. I like the way my clothes fit better. I have more confidence in myself and my appearance.
At the start I was happy and energized all the time. I felt great. After a couple months of one week tweaks, I started doing it every day. By the end of that first week, of everyday usage, my head hurt so much. I felt down and weak. I decided to stick to one nite binge a week.
A few weeks later, I started using more. I started noticing that bumps were all over my arms. I had acne on my face. My hair was falling out, a lot more than I expected.
I started in July 2006, and by the start of December I had slowed down a lot. I've realized I have a love, hate relationship with meth that will last my whole life.
I have a love, hate relationship with meth that will last my whole life.
I've been clean for about 3 months and the cravings still hit me. Anything about meth, makes me jittery. Just writing this report makes me nervous. I deeply believe that Crystal will always be my friend for life.
