Methamphetamine Addiction

From its first use, methamphetamine creates an effect that is conducive to addiction. The euphoric feeling obtained by methamphetamine is long lasting, and most of the early side effects of the drug are desirable. The initial feelings of high energy, tirelessness, excitation and lack of appetite, combined with the pleasurable high that created by methamphetamine make easily understandable the desire to repeat the experience. As a result, addiction occurs in very short order. As early as the first several uses, the user becomes dependent on the drug to offset the lows that take place when the drug wears off. Within those first early uses of methamphetamine, the cycle is already set.
