How long does the side effects of meth stay with you?
I have used meth twice in the last 2 months. the last time was 4 days ago (I took 4 lines and smoked a little bit of it) and I still feel dry mouth, anxiety, some confusion, no desire to eat...I just want to know when this will go away so i can relax my mind.
and i have an irregular heart beat

Some will go away soon. Allot of the damage meth causes can be permanent.

The key is... To stop using now... BEFORE its too late

i mean...i have no plans in using it again. i used it cuz of peer pressure. But I'm just worried about my body, I've also smoked a lot of weed while i was on meth and even the days after i used meth. does this prolong the effects? and when do you think these feelings will go away?

Take a hot bath. eat some soup and stay the heck away from meth and even the people that you did it with.
the feelings you are so worried about and dislike now will only blaze you 1000 fold. you will be a very sad and lonely person. the "friends" you think you have will be dealing with their own demons and they will be no where in sight to help you. so be kind to yourself and stay away from meth.

read and learn from this board.
good luck...

will do. A drug counselor said that these feelings will go away by the end of the week. do you guys agree with that??

Take a read so you understand what you are dealing with.
I wrote that article, so if you have questions about it, let me know.

Jeez, this person said they used twice in the last two months and have no plans to ever use again.

Why are we treating him/her like an addict?
It's one thing to make sure the person knows the dangers - it's another to assume they have a drug problem when so far it doesn't look like they do.

Contrary to popular belief and especially hard for us addicts to believe, not everyone falls in love with meth like we did. Some people use once, twice, three times and decide they don't like it. It happens.

Maybe we shouldn't assume the worst unless there's a little more evidence.

In the beginning, it took me about a week or two to start feeling normal again. I was addicted the first time I used meth, but I didn't know it. I had cravings, but I didn't realize they were cravings. I thought I was just thinking and daydreaming about using again. I didn't think that counted as a craving.

After using heavily and then quitting it took me a couple of years to start feeling normal again. Meth forever changed me. Whatever you do, don't touch the stuff again, please. Avoid it and everyone who uses it like the plague. It only gets worse.

Did you say you saw a drug counselor? Do you already have addiction issues?

Re: How long does the side effects of meth stay with you?
no, I said i spoke to a drug counselor on the PHONE. I don't have an addiction. I've only used it twice. once in a small amount, and recently in a higher amount so I was just wondering if the feeling of depression, fatigue and anxiety are with drawl symptoms and how long they usually last after some1 has stopped using meth. I never even had a bad "crash" cuz i always force myself to sleep and eat the same night. but I began feeling this way a few days after i used it.
