Methamphetamine abuse is a critical problem as an addictive substance for women. The chemical makeup of the substance lends itself to highly addictive characteristics. While often used in concert with other abuse substances, meth abuse is also common as a sole addictive substance. While it often targets younger demographics, the addictive power of methamphetamines can strike anyone.
Working-class individuals have often been seen to use methamphetamines as a method of obtaining energy for longer shifts. Some women have been seen to use it as a weight loss method. Its price, being less than other substances, can make it attractive to almost anyone looking for a quick fix. After the first, and subsequent uses of methamphetamines, users display symptoms of dizziness, loss of appetite, impaired speech, acne, sores, tooth grinding, and pupil dilation. Other than the superficial symptoms, long-term side effects of methamphetamine addiction can lead to liver damage, brain damage, lung disorders, blood clots, and chronic kidney disorders.
The dangers of meth can manifest extremely quickly. A methamphetamine overdose can happen with as little as 50 mg ingested by the user without a built-up tolerance.
