    Meth is such a destructive drug, in a short period of time a person can become addicted and they're lives are changed forever without help. Long term use of meth not only leads to addiction but the changes that take place in the brain make it next to impossible to stop on your own without help. When a person is chronically addicted to meth the anxiety, confusion, depression, delusions and paranoia some people experience has to be a living nightmare.

    Studies also show a person whom abuses meth increases their risk of Parkinson's disease. Sadly today methamphetamines and stimulant drugs that are similar to meth are the "second most widely used class of illegal drugs in the world".

    There are symptoms to look for if a person is using meth which can include dilated pupils, unable to sleep, anxiousness, nervousness, nonstop talking, mood swings, irritability, repetitive behavior, picking at their skin, skin rashes and sores, agitation, weight loss, and violent behavior.
