A guy came up to me on the street before in Dublin and asked me if I wanted to buy Crystal Meth.
I wouldn't have believed he actually had it had I not noticed his teeth. They were almost non-existent, and what was left was rotted to the core and your teeth are one of the first thing crystal meth destroys. Only a young lad too... well I'm assuming, he actually looked about 40 but wouldn't say he was older than 25.
In USA, they don't really have inbetween drugs as much as we do in Europe - MDMA for example. They're kinda stuck with either smoking weed or going to much more of an extreme like Crystal Meth. When I was living in America most people I met there (early 20s) had all taken it at some stage - it's like their version of pills except way, way, way, way, way worse for ya.
Thank god for ecstasy, ay.
Another example of how Meth ****s your face, this girl was on America's Next Top Model a few years ago. Second photo is from her recent appearance on Dr. Phil:
It actually really takes off from mid-second season. Slow burner too imo for the first series. Truly brilliant from then on.
Jesus! I remember her! Actually, during the show, she lost a friend to an overdose.
And it's actually embarrassing how much I know about ANTM.
Eh no - just brilliant from start to finish!
The last episode of season 4 was !
Keep telling strangers about it. I find that helps
Oooh, burn! You're so badass.
MDMA is the big drug, Weed is probably the most widely used but MDMA is the party drug in Ireland used by the most people. Well that and alcohol. Heroin is a fairly niche scene most people don't try it recreationally and for the most part it's restricted to down and outs. I've never once been offer heroin by a dealer or even known a dealer that sells it.
How did you know the crystal meth destroyed his teeth .?
It's a known side affect. Mixture of the chemical's and the fact user's become lethargic and dont brush their teeth.
I know that , I'm curious as to how he knew the crystal meth destroyed his teeth.
Heroin,cocaine and ecstasy all affect teeth as well either through dry mouth,cravings for sugary products ,grinding alongside general lack of dental care.
Lived there around then myself. My fondest memory would be waiting for a bus when a crackhead pulled down his trousers, bent over a shopping trolley and quite vocally offered for us to "**** him in the ass". Value for money though
It's one of the big tell tale signs, they call it "meth mouth".
Partly due to the ingredients and method of use, like it's incredibly acidic absolutely full to the brim of chemicals and often they'll rub in into their gums as they're taking it in a different form too. Just to get that quicker high.
Might be the fact he offered him meth then.
