What it does

Meth is like a computer virus. It convinces the user that nothing is wrong. It produces an artificial feeling of well-being and anesthetizes the part of the brain that takes care of day-to-day business. It also numbs painful feelings. Negative feelings return with a vengeance when the drug wears off and the user feels worse. With meth users, their non-using relationships fall by the wayside, and sooner or later their whole social network is made up of other users. The drug becomes the glue that holds the relationships together
