    So I have been around this site for some time,usually I share in the "Share your story"Section but today just reading and watching meth in action has me worked up.I am a recovering meth addict,i struggled off and on for over 15 year's with this terrible addiction and today i hate meth more than any substance I have ever been on or tried.Meth delivers pure illusion..Not just illusion but love's to cripple humanity in a state of delusion.It lies to a person from the first time you try it all the way until it has taken everything from you.It will keep you awake and alert and make you feel like you can work faster,longer,and more efficient and in the end it leaves you wondering "Why did I lose my job,family,self respect"I have struggled with several substances none of which are any where near as crippling as meth.Today I read about a woman who was kidnapped and forced to smoke meth for day's and I haven't been able to stop the anger since,today I heard my uncle do a line in the bathroom and I just can't believe he has accepted the destruction of meth with open arm's. My uncle tried to make meth look fun when he came out of the bathroom, he started rocking out by himself to music on YouTube as if he were the only person alive and all was great...2 song's in it was over he sat down and started endlessly searching whatever on his phone.I didn't need the reminder yet here it is sitting on my couch.He is probably not going to be around long,he can't breath well because his lungs are crystallized from the meth,he has never smoked a single cigarette yet his breathing is far worse than a life long smoker...I can't stop thinking about what that poor woman went through and today I have to sit in front of someone high on meth...Today is going to be very difficult for me and I hope and pray everyone see's how terrible this drug is and seeks help or stops using it.In my opinion it is the worst drug ever created.

    Please Seek Help Before Meth Destroys Your Lives.STAY STRONG AND GOD BLESS

    Sorry you have to be around your uncle, @True concern. I know that sucks. But I'm grateful that you're part of this community, and for all the insight and knowledge you share. I'm proud to know you, my friend!

    If I may ask, how did you put the brakes on this drug. I am new to this one, maybe 5 months. Longest I have been without is a week. I have been on and off crack for 10ish years. Since my first hit on clear, I haven't looked back. My life feels like the illusion now. I have hope to stop but I can't muster the faith to break free.

    To keep it real......I didn't like where it put my mind,over thinking nonsense, porn,hate,rage,all symptoms of the devil if you're a person of faith.I lost my wife,kids,home,self respect, etc.....but I know you are not new to that 10 year's of crack did the same sh*t just not for a week at a time.In the end I knew I was worth more,i could be better than,I was superior to what that drug made my mind believe, ultimately you have to sleep first!!!Wake up Eat, Sh*t!!! Repeat constantly and consistently for at least 3 full day's 24/7 no bullshitt sleep it off and do everything you can to spread the word try evil comes from delusion in the mind and never touch that sh*t again
