Is Crystal Meth Making Me Sick? Learn the Facts
Crystal meth (also known as ice, glass, or Tina) can seem like a great idea when you first start using it. It gives you energy and makes you feel invincible. You lose weight, too. What could be wrong with that? But it’s not quite that simple. If you’re using crystal meth, you can get addicted very quickly—and things will happen to your body that don’t feel good at all. If you find yourself asking “am I addicted to crystal meth? Is crystal meth affecting my health?” then here are some questions to ask yourself:
- Have I been losing weight rapidly?
- Do I look too skinny?
- Are my teeth turning brown or black or falling out?
- Is my skin splotchy, itchy, or dry?
- Is my skin aging faster than it should?
- Do I look older than I am?
- Have I been suffering from depression or other kinds of mental illness?
- Have I been having unsafe sex?
If you use crystal meth and answered “yes” to one or more of these questions, then it is very likely that crystal meth addiction is affecting your health. Crystal meth is made from toxic chemicals so poisonous that meth labs have become a serious environmental hazard. If it poisons the ground, think about what it does to your body. Quitting crystal meth is the best possible thing you can do for your health, today and in the future.
