Methamphetamine: A Love Story presents an insider’s view of the world of methamphetamine based on the life stories of thirty-three adults formerly immersed in using, dealing, and manufacturing meth in rural Oklahoma. Using a respectful tone towards her subjects, Shukla illuminates their often decades-long love affair with the drug, the attractions of the lifestyle, the eventual unsustainability of it, and the challenges of exiting the life. These personal stories reveal how and why people with limited economic means and inadequate resources become entrapped in the drug epidemic, while challenging longstanding societal views about addiction, drugs, drug policy, and public health.

This New York Times bestselling memoir of a young man’s addiction to methamphetamine tells a raw, harrowing, and ultimately hopeful tale of the road from relapse to recovery and complements his father’s parallel memoir, Beautiful Boy.

Nic Sheff was drunk for the first time at age eleven. In the years that followed, he would regularly smoke pot, do cocaine and Ecstasy, and develop addictions to crystal meth and heroin. Even so, he felt like he would always be able to quit and put his life together whenever he needed to. It took a violent relapse one summer in California to convince him otherwise. In a voice that is raw and honest, Nic spares no detail in telling us the compelling, heartbreaking, and true story of his relapse and the road to recovery. As we watch Nic plunge the mental and physical depths of drug addiction, he paints a picture for us of a person at odds with his past, with his family, with his substances, and with himself. It's a harrowing portrait—but not one without hope.

In recent years, the media have inundated us with coverage of the horrors that befall methamphetamine users, and the fires, explosions, and toxic waste created by meth labs that threaten the well-being of innocent people. In Methamphetamine: Its History, Pharmacology, and Treatment, the first book in Hazelden's Library of Addictive Drugs series, Ralph Weisheit and William L. White examine the nature and extent of meth use in the United States, from meth's early reputation as a 'wonder drug' to the current perception that it is a 'scourge' of society.

In separating fact from fiction, Weisheit and White provide context for understanding the meth problem by tracing its history and the varying patterns of use over time, then offer an in-depth look at:

  • the latest scientific findings on the effects of the drug on individuals
  • the myths and realities of the drug's impact on the mind
  • the national and international implications of methamphetamine production
  • the drug's impact on rural communities, including a case study of two counties in the Midwest
  • issues in addiction and treatment of meth

 Thoroughly researched and highly readable, Methamphetamine offers a comprehensive understanding of medical, social, and political issues concerning this highly impactful drug.

In Overcoming Crystal Methamphetamine Addiction, one of the few books to address the topic for a general audience, Dr. Steven Lee, MD, a psychiatrist who specializes in crystal meth addiction, offers a complete guide to the drug, its effects, and how to overcome it. Based on extensive scientific and social research and drawing from his professional experience, he covers everything from the definition and history of crystal meth to the physical and psychological effects; from dealing with the addictive personality to helping a friend or family member cope with it. He focuses on understanding rather than outright condemnation of the drug, and empathetically covers all of the crucial questions: What is crystal meth? How is it made? How does it affect the body? How do you know if you're addicted to it? How do you stop using it? What if you don't want to stop? If you are going to use CM anyway, how can you minimize the damage? What if you quit but slipped and used again?

Quit Meth Now! Is a self-help guide to kicking any Cocaine or Methamphetamine addiction. It’s an algorithm style drug treatment program that guarantees anyone who reads through the entire book and follows all of the instructions inside WILL BE DRUG FREE by the time they close the back cover and will have all of the tools to stay drug free for the rest of their life. Quit Meth Now! is the culmination of a 14 year study through trial and error that is the cure for drug addiction and takes the addict who is CURRENTLY USING meth or cocaine and teaches them how to first, let go and walk away, then teaches them how to self-detox with a 14 day program. The self-detox method uses several over-the-counter pharmaceuticals, vitamins, herbs and other products that reduce the withdrawal symptoms associated with drug addiction and treatment. During the process it teaches the addict several mind techniques that will help to counter all of the triggers that usually chase the addict back into relapse. Quit meth Now! is a cure and a final step that does not allow for relapse and ends the problem of addiction with simple mind games once the 14 day self-detox is complete.

We have been hiding from the world to create this program and this book is written in a style that speaks directly to the reader and teaches the truth through philosophical belief that the cure is within you because the power to cure a drug addiction is you. This is not a faith-based program in that it speaks directly to the addict in real terms and doesn’t pass-the-buck by asking the reader to trust a higher power. Religion is always on one’s own terms and has nothing to do with drug addiction. If you or anyone you know wants to kick a drug addiction right now, once and for all, you NEED this book. This program is also designed in a way that will supply an addict who is not interested in quitting with enough subliminal information on how to quit, that they will most likely decide to quit anyway within 6 months to a year, if they read all of the material. This book digs deep into the mind and takes away the ability of an addict to say that they're addicted because there is no way to quit…Drug addiction is NOT a disease my friends…and time is relevant. Peace!

Meth a short word for a deadly drug that is very harmful.

If it does not cause your death in a short time,it will make age your body and face.
The pictures I used are in no way meant as a look down upon people as most of these users quit and live happy safe lives now.
Were you aware that drug dealers use products such as glass and household cleansing products to give you a better high? They even take a screen, spray bug spray onto it and scrape it onto your "weed".

If you believe they care about anything but your money-think again.

You may not like seeing the truth, but here it is-in pictures from a former Jail Nurse.

If your friends are using, you may want to find new friends.

Again,Drug dealers want your money and do not care if they cause you to go to prison for a very long time. They could care less if they kill you.

See for yourself what this powerful addictive drug can do.

I also worked in a jail.

It is a bad place to live. The food is bad and it is very stressful and you have to worry about being raped or beaten up all the time.
If you sell this drug, use it or know people who do;

Call Crime-stoppers as it may save their life.

The first wave of methamphetamine use began in the late 1980s and its prevalence has continued to rise across the United States and throughout the world. As with any harmful substance, its abuse has far-reaching ramifications that go beyond the destruction it causes to the human body. Written by a multidisciplinary team of experts, Methamphetamine Use: Clinical and Forensic Aspects, Second Edition examines meth use and abuse from clinical, forensic, and criminal justice perspectives. Updated and expanded to reflect changes in recent years, this volume covers virtually every aspect of this dangerous drug.

The book begins with a history of drug control in America, then provides global perspectives on methamphetamine use. It explores biochemical aspects and includes a chapter on the methamphetamine analogue "ecstasy." The text examines the effects of meth use on human behavior, with a special focus on empirical evidence of amphetamine use as a contributing factor in aggression. The authors discuss forensic issues related to methamphetamine use in chapters covering expert testimony, criminal responsibility, mitigation in sentencing, and competency to stand trial. The last section examines various treatment modalities.

As methamphetamine grows once again in popularity, it is crucial that those who deal with the effects of it be well-informed about the dangers it poses. This volume provides a comprehensive, critical survey of the current knowledge regarding the use and abuse of this dangerous and ubiquitous substance.
