A Warning About Crystal Meth

    I'm so naive. I've been dating this guy for a few months and was beginning to have real feelings for him. A great guy......seemingly happy and energetic, very handsome and fun to be with.

    When he failed to show up for dinner, I called him at home. He told me a friend of his gave him some meth and asked me if I wanted to come up to his place and do it with him.

    I had no freakin idea. For me, this was shocking and a complete dealbreaker.

    Not only that, but a friend of mine told me that I was probably ingesting meth when we kissed, or when when we exchanged saliva around the butt and mixed our sweat together.

    And like most people with a drug/alchohol problem, they will lie lie lie. Already I am getting desperate sounding emails and messages where he says things like...."I'm sorry, I will never do it again". I don't even want to go there.

    I noticed that I had been feeling kinda depressed for the past week or so.....lethargic and jumpy at the same time. I was loosing interest in certain projects I am doing and started to turn on the mindless boob tube more often.
    Now I knew why.

    So the moral of the story is...........just like second hand smoke.........even if you don't actually partake, your mental and physical health can be harmed when you are around someone who does.

    You can't get "second-hand tweaker" unless you're in the room when he's smoking it. Even if you did get ANY meth through his saliva, it's not enough to cause much more than a heart flutter. For you to be feeling any withdrawal symptoms, you'd have to be hitting a fair amount of meth for at least a couple days.

    Now stop freaking out about freaking out. Block the fucker and move on.

    Yes, I think your withdrawal symptoms are from quitting him, not meth.

    hey flex, he's been dating this guy a few months, and so a steady low grade exposure could be cumulative, but nothing to worry about.

    That said, Kissingpro, we think your feeling off is partly due to the strong sensation of being betrayed on a level important to you that this guy must have been aware of.

    I had a lesbian roommate many years ago that said "oh no not me" when asked, then I caught her and a friend smoking it in the kitchen one night. It explained a lot of her odd habits and behaviours. I paid her to leave.

    It was a good amount of $$$, so she left.

    That was the last roomie I had until I eventually met Bill.

    This is why it's so important to do discovery on folks BEFORE you get involved with them. It's always prudent to do some level of background check on anyone you allow in your inner circle.

    Here's the up side. It's in the PAST. It's OVER WITH. Move on. Cut your losses. Get something better. Don't look back.

    Agreed.. there's absolutely no science behind it. Even though the situation itself sucks.

    BTW - what is 'exchanging saliva around the butt"?

    Hmmmm...I'm not sure I even want to know icon_eek.gif

    Just when you think you've heard it all --- "Second hand Meth"? That's just crazy.

    I saw that too, but I'm not even asking. I don't want to know and don't want to hear the answer.

    ....my bad, Chucky, I forgot that everything is actually all about YOU.



    I don't get why some of you are so unbelievably hateful and darn right nasty. I swear some of you take the term "Bitchy Queen" to a whole new level, following certain members around forum to forum and just attacking them. It says way more about YOU than the people you are attacking. Nothing wrong with stating an opposite opinion, but what's with all the mean-spirited vitriol over and over again aimed at the same people? Honestly, it gets really tiresome.

    Just my two cents.

    I agree that you are just withdrawing from the bf. There is no evidence at all that you can transfer any traceable amounts of meth through saliva or sweat. Even if it were true, it would be so broken down that it wouldn't significant enough to have an effect on another.

    I feel your pain. It is hard to deal with an partner/someone you're dating that is an addict or potentially an addict. I think cutting times is the best option. That doesnt make it easier. My former partner was an alcoholic and at a certain point all I was doing was enabling him. I had to finally let go and it was painful.

    KP, I don't know how serious things got between you two, but if you really do have feelings for him there are other options other than walking away. There are different degrees of addiction and maybe he can be saved. Perhaps he just needs someone to care enough about him to help him find his way back out of the abyss that drugs can take someone to.

    I agree with AZ. You didn't really give a ton of background (which is fine, it's none of our business) but if this is someone you've gone out with for a decent amount of time, and per your post, he is, then perhaps part of the sick feeling you're getting is because you're turning your back on him and ignoring him?

    I am by no means lecturing you - I have zero tolerance for drug use in BF's, and I really don't even want to be friends with regular drug users - but at the same time, was this the first time? There's a difference between experimentation and addiction, but I'm not sure that even you know what the situation is because you ran screaming from it.

    Again, that's totally your right, but I can't help but think it might have been a bit hasty without even talking through it.. if you did, my bad.. just didn't pick that up from the OP.

    Ok, who's been living under a rock enough to think that a friend giving them meth is a good thing? Worse than that, he invites his new bf over to consume a highly addictive drug that DESTROYS lives. Jesus, I am glad you are rid of him.

    Meth ended my last relationship after 6 years. It started as something we did only at 1 big party a year and turned into his using in the bathroom at the Bank and fired.

    There's no casually using that evil substance. People that try to tell you otherwise aren't being honest with themselves and the hold it has on them.

    I want to know this to but then again it may be TMI.

    Never heard of any withdrawals from someone who just kissed someone who does the stuff and withdrawaling from something is an indication they've ingested a lot over a long period of time.
