Meth Smoking - Top 20 Dangers of Methamphetamine

Updated on September 15, 2015

So I decided to crank out the crystal clear dope on why everyone should start tweaking methamphetamine before they find themselves on thin ice. Here's the straight 101 on meth smoking...

Crystal Meth Info - Why You SHOULD Become an Addict

  • 1. You love the taste of laundry detergent and lighter fluid in the morning.
  • 2. Screw Mr. Clean - now you will be able to completely sanitize and sterilize your entire neighborhood block every single day, no questions asked, all by yourself. This has been an official public service announcement.
  • 3. You want it to be the end of R.E.M. as we know it.
  • 4. You hope that someday one of your injections will finally infect you with the gift of HIV which you will be able to pass on to others.

  • 5. You want to prove to your family you can win against a heart attack, keep a straight face during a massive stroke, and will not giggle like a sissy during the tingling sensation of blood vessels bursting beneath your skin.
  • 6. You know that monsters hide under your bed, in your closet, and ninjas will attack you when you leave your house. Now, at least, you will finally be able to see them!
  • 7. Because... well, you forgot why.
  • 9. You want to constantly be host to viruses, bacteria, and other microscopic monstrosities. They don't call you a walking ecosystem for nothing.
  • 10. You hate being infiltrated by oxygen all the time. Gosh...

Using methamphetamines can cause advanced aging and possibly irreversible damage to your physical appearance.

  • 11. You enjoy vegetables so much, you want to be one! What could be healthier than that?
  • 12. You cannot flop around on the floor on your own. If God wanted you to involuntarily act like a fish... oh yeah, he didn't invent meth.
  • 13. You would like to contribute to the Maalox foundation.
  • 14. The gym falls short of truly making you Niagara Falls incarnate.

“The clown was an evil one. They’re either good or bad, and this one was definitely the latter.”
Chris Thrall, Eating Smoke: One Man's Descent Into Crystal Meth Psychosis in Hong Kong's Triad Heartland

  • 15. You want to feel worthless, all alone, and a failure. You will already be taking meth, why not anti-depressants too?
  • 16. Your dentures will be easier to clean than your teeth.
  • 17. Becus y uh wan to uh brain bye.
  • 18. Nature gave you two kidneys, might as well get rid of one. Or hey, why not both? Who's counting anyway?
  • 19. You want to see dead people, or purple people, or flying rabid bunnies. Maybe you just want Santa Clause to exist again.
  • 20. Besides... who can turn down a drug you can smoke, snort, and shoot up... all at once!

Rock on Tina!

You fill our glasses with toxins and ooze, speed our libidos toward STDS, and cloud our futures with a chalky haze envied only by the most self loathsome of souls. I spit in my hat for you.

And Now... This...

      Dudes who have the word “dreamer” in their name are cookers 

      8 months ago

      As my post name suggests, a “dreamer” is someone who cooks methamphetamine. Clean my butt...anyway, I’ve used methamphetamine many many times throughout my psychonaut career , but to view it as a possible addiction in comparison to opiates seems a bit silly. Quitting heroin/oxymorph/hydromorph or just good old morphine is absolute hell. In my case, 2 years at the methadone clinic and one of the only people to actually taper off and clean up. Whoops, relapse, suboxone, cycle repeats. It went that way for years until I finally found meaning in my life. Point is, meth can be very fun and the sexual times are fantastic, but it turns people into sketchball lunatics, amphetamine psychosis is very ugly to see someone go through. Here’s the thing...you can quit, sleep for a couple of days, and quit buying the shit. It’s not like heroin where your soul is on fire, you can’t sleep, shitting yourself in bed, depression to the level of agony, muscle spasms and random tremors, literally the most uncomfortable space I’ve ever experienced. It’s just..not the same. I know it’s nice to get another hit, but you can stop and be miserable for a bit, coming off dope is a whole other level. Simplify my diatribe with this simple fact, extreme physical withdrawal vs sleeping a couple of days and being depressed for months. You literally go straight into PAWS after resting up, quit whining.

      Hi daydreamer! I'm glad you found it encouraging. I think people have actually been voting it down because they do not understand the irony and might even believe its meant to make fun of meth users. I used this piece several times when I ran teen alcohol and drug recovery courses a few years back. Good to hear its still relevant and useful. All the best!

      As a long term user of most drugs, crystal meth is something I have only heard of, is it big in the U.K.?

      I don't want to experience any more drugs and your hub is great for re-enforcing my feelings about addiction. Is it possible to explain how Crystal meth is different from say amphetamines or cocaine?

      Hi Damon,

      I am really sorry to hear about your dad. My father also died from a drug overdose. I did not write this with the intent of making light the dangers of using meth. I tried to write it in a creative way to demonstrate all the terrible things meth will do to a person.

      I apologize if it came off the wrong way. I am hoping that people can use this piece to help show others what an awful drug this can be, but I do understand that sarcasm can be misconstrued. I meant no offense to people or family members affected by meth addiction =\

      Well said, old bean!

      Designers of anti-drug ads should take some cues from you.

      I'm sure a bright, cheery and amusing poster will be better remembered than some of the gray and dreary stuff I've seen in buses.
