There's a drug addict on "Intervention" right now who is out of her mind on meth and alcohol, and has been for 10 years. Her face is as clear as a bell without a SPOT on it.

I on the other hand, am gainfully employed and drug free, and yet I sit here with zit cream smeared all over my face and planning a trip to the store tomorrow to pick up some apple cider vinegar to get rid of the hideous red marks from previous breakouts.

Where's the justice, my brothahs and sistahs?

Some of those shows are staged you know. They use actors that don't have issues, just so they can make money off it. Kind of like Jerry Springer.

I said to one of my roommates "damn, that chick has nice skin for being a meth head!". WEIRD!

For the most part, I think she is in the minority of meth heads with clear skin. While they were showing pictures of her as a teen (before the drugs) she had goregeous skin.

Most people with meth usually compulsively pick and as a result have huge gaping wounds. Check out "the faces of meth" for proof:

(I only know all this because I have learned about substance abuse as a part of my degree program....I don't do meth!!!)

i don't think its the meth but rather the picking like someone said previously that causes any lesions

I take adderall (pure amphetaine salts) for my ADD/OCD and i don't pick and so far it hasn't hurt my skin at all.

I think it varies person to person. Also most really hard core junkies (meth makes you hardcore very very quickly) wind up with horrible teeth etc. from a SUPER bad diet of nothing to utter junk as its all they can come across.

I was thinking the same thing when I saw that show this weekend! Her teeth weren't black either!!! WTF? Its so unfair! Most of the meth addicts I've seen (on TV) have just looked awful! She was missing her eyebrows though!

Oh boy, but she was way out of her freaking mind! Freaking lunitic! I think that even if she did follow through with treatment, she would still be so weird! That stuff has eaten her brain, along with all that alcohol!

My skin was the worst it ever has been when I was shoveling meth into my veins. For the most part, speed makes people OCD on thier skin. Also, if you shoot it, it will literally EAT THROUGH YOUR VEINS and collapse the vein/skin above it, causing holes and lesions in your skin.

Plus, five and a half years clean, my teeth are STILL bad!

Drugs are bad. smile.gif

And I agree, this is a funny anti-drug post!
