After going through several discussions in the forum, I found out that people use Methamphetamine for various reasons; some use the drug for recreational purposes, while others use the drug to treat illnesses such as ADD and ADHD. From the discussions, there is a belief that Methamphetamine, if used in smaller doses, can be useful in treating ADHD, although the people using it for treatment are self-medicating. The drug users seem to understand the dangers of using Methamphetamine but are adamant that the drug has more positive than adverse outcomes if used with care. There is also a case whereby the users justify why they use the drug for recreational purposes, with the agreement being that one cannot be addicted to the drug if they use it in small doses about twice a month. One user admitted that they had used the drug for years but always ensures that they eat a healthy diet; they pace themselves while using the medicine and take time off the drug to avoid dependence. What surprised me in this forum was the casual nature in which people discussed their drug use. Methamphetamine is a highly potent stimulant that may permanently affect the central nervous system as well as the heart, and an overdose can lead to death. According to the forum, the drug seems to be popular as a weight loss regimen as well as a recreational drug. The use of Methamphetamine reduces appetite making the user eat less food. Use of the drug is an unhealthy way of losing weight since it can lead to malnourishment and other side effects of Methamphetamine, such as psychosis, bleeding in the brain, seizures, and breakdown of the skeletal muscles. The drug also seems to be easily accessible through online platforms despite it being a controlled drug.
