Effects Of Meth

It would be easy to just say “meth is bad”, however there are effects of meth that reach far beyond that one adjective. Both long and short term meth use have effects on the body. The longer a person uses meth, the more obvious and far reaching the effects seem to be. From skin and teeth problems to permanent mental issues, meth is known to have negative effects on nearly every system of the body.

Meth also effects nearly everyone in an addicts life in one way or another. Addicts rarely fall into an addictive spiral alone. More often than not, there is a path of destruction in the wake of a meth user’s destructive behavior which generally involves parents, children, extended family, friends and loved ones.
