What to look for?!?

So Meth is on the rise and more and more teenagers are using it because it is easy to get ahold of, and fairly easy to make.

As people we need to know what to look for.

When first starting out in addiction it is alot easier to help people then when they are already gone.

So here are some signs of Meth use:

Euphoric "high" state (excessively happy)
Decreased appetite/weight loss
Increased physical activity
Anxiety, shaking hands, nervousness
Incessant talking
Increased temperature (can rise as high as 108 degrees and cause death)
Convulsions at high doses
Chest pain, elevated blood pressure
Dilated pupils
Dry or itchy skin
Sweating not related to physical activity
Irritable and moody (mood swings)
Picking at skin or hair
Aggressive or violent behavior
Depression (withdrawal/tolerance effect

Meth is a horribly addictive drug that can ruin the users life and the people around them!
