Meth Mites. Meth does not just destroy your teeth - Meth addicts scratch and pick at their skin or feel like bugs are crawling underneath their skin. Resulting in sores and scabs.

    It is hard to look at, but the reality is meth has this efffect on users. I am majoring in drugs/alcohol and health and human services. One is never too old to go to college for the fist time. I was 48 when I began and will graduate next spring and hope to make a little difference in the world around me. Through education and outreach.

    Wow, horrible.

  • Sharon Colpitts

    @stephnie it is sad. I cannot imagine what these people go through regardless of their sex or age. Drugs do not discriminate; so many believe it is the poor that use & abuse drugs, but middle/upper class are no different. All classes have a variety of ways in how he/she administer the drug as well. There are so many reasons why people turn to drugs. The sad part is our youth - convinced by their piers say it is no big deal & it will not hurt him/her to try it just one time. That one time can lead into a life long addiction or even death their is no guarantee as too what an individuals body can handle. I thought I was a pretty good parent, but even that is not a guarantee one of my children did not get into meth- praise The Lord, but what my child was using & abusing was bad enough & could have lead to this. It took years of prayer & writing Dear God letters in journals & asking any & everyone to pray. I did not care what they thought/said about me. I wanted my child back. God answered.

    "I AM METH" (This was written by a young Indian girl who was in jail for drug charges, and was addicted to meth. She wrote this while in jail. As you will soon read, she fully grasped the horrors of the drug, as she tells in this simple, yet profound poem. She was released from jail, but, true to her story, the drug owned her. They found her dead not long after, with the needle still in her arm.) Please keep praying for our Children, Teens, Young adults. Understand, this thing is worse than any of us realize... My Name: "Is Meth" I destroy homes, I tear families apart, take your children, and that's just the start. I'm more costly than diamonds, more precious than gold, The sorrow I bring is a sight to behold. If you need me, remember I'm easily found, I live all around you - in schools and in town I live with the rich; I live with the poor, I live down the street, and maybe next door. I'm made in a lab, but not like you think, I can be made under the kitchen sink. In your child's closet, and even in the woods, If this scares you to death, well it certainly should. I have many names, but there's one you know best, I'm sure you've heard of me, my name is crystal meth. My power is awesome; try me you'll see, But if you do, you may never break free. Just try me once and I might let you go, But try me twice, and I'll own your soul. When I possess you, you'll steal and you'll lie, You do what you have to -- just to get high. The crimes you'll commit for my narcotic charms Will be worth the pleasure you'll feel in your arms,your lungs your nose. You'll lie to your mother; you'll steal from your dad, When you see their tears, you should feel sad. But you'll forget your morals and how you were raised, I'll be your conscience, I'll teach you my ways. I take kids from parents, and parents from kids, I turn people from God, and separate friends. I'll take everything from you, your looks and your pride, I'll be with you always -- right by your side. You'll give up everything - your family, your home, Your friends, your money, then you'll be alone. I'll take and take, till you have nothing more to give, When I'm finished with you, you'll be lucky to live. If you try me be warned - this is no game, If given the chance, I'll drive you insane. I'll ravish your body, I'll control your mind, I'll own you completely, your soul will be mine. The nightmares I'll give you while lying in bed, The voices you'll hear, from inside your head. The sweats, the shakes, the visions you'll see, I want you to know, these are all gifts from me. But then it's too late, and you'll know in your heart, That you are mine, and we shall not part. You'll regret that you tried me, they always do, But you came to me, not I to you. You knew this would happen, many times you were told, But you challenged my power, and chose to be bold. You could have said no, and just walked away, If you could live that day over, now what would you say? I'll be your master, you will be my slave, I'll even go with you, when you go to your grave. Now that you have met me, what will you do? Will you try me or not? It's all up to you. I can bring you more misery than words can tell, Come take my hand, let me lead you to heck

    I have this board called InnerCircle its to stand up against drugs weed, meth, crack.. so thats how i came across this... but i really dont want it on my board it makes me sick!

  • Sharon Colpitts

    Well Ruta... If you want to stand-up for drugs I believe you must "Stand Out" from others. If this meth mouth makes you sick - then the photo is doing it's job to keep some off drugs. So... Stand Up and Stand Out!

  • Shoeless

    this is simply not the case with everyone or even most of the people that use meth. look at statistics too and you will see that not everyone who tries meth gets addicted to it like they want you to think. i just want people to get the right information instead of propaganda like this. im not saying meth is good for you, but these faces of meth and meth mouth are extreme cases with the cause mainly by bad hygiene and lack of health. The federal govt prescribes the same shit to kids listing the same symptons. its drys your mouth out like alot of other medication but it doesnt rott your teeth. the people that push these ads are simply uneducated on the topic. sorry sharon but i dont know where you came up with the fact that meth is an opiate based drug. thats simply wrong. the truth is their painting a bad picture of people that use drugs and it has created such a prejudice and fear that is just not right. they had reefer madness in the 30's, crack in the 80s and now its meth. all this does is build the prison industry complex and create money for somebodys pockets. these people just dont know what their talking about and their creating such long term damage through hysteria and fear. i know people that use drugs reguarly and are very nice people that have empathy for others, have jobs, pay bills and are better members of society than some people i know that dont use. but if you put them side by side and tell people which one uses drugs, they are automatically can be demonized without any just cause for it.

    I have an opinion both for and against this, but I will keep it to myself. I will however pin it to a board because it makes for a great discussion and could open the door to keep others from trying meth and help others to stop. For the ones that can handle it more power to you and don't get caught.

  • jackie ponce

    "For the ones that can handle it".... hahaha yeah, right! Not a single soul can "handle" meth! You don't smoke meth; the meth smokes you. Don't try this at home kids!

    ohhhh,the meth mouth....see it everyday in people that come buy sudafed everyday at my pharmacy, so sad

  • Sharon Colpitts

    Yes it is sad. Opiates can do the same. I am glad that it is a little harder for addicts to get, but on the other hand they just find another method to get high. My minor is in drugs and alcohol.

Hate the drug, hate the addiction, but don't hate the addict. Choose life, health, and freedom. Do not let Meth age you and destroy you. You do have a purpose in this life.

Hate the drug, hate the addiction, but don't hate the addict. Children are not stupid... they are scared.
