Is it just me or is meth making a comeback? It was really big in the 90's to early 2000's and then seemed to die away. Now it's like it's making a comeback.
Here's a meth story; A few weeks ago, I was taking a walk by my house and had this crazy thing happen to me. It was early evening and I was a mile or so from my house. I'm walking on the sidewalk and I notice this guy on the other side of the street looking at me really oddly. Right away I could tell he was tweaking hard (super jittery, looking everywhere, eyes were huge like an owl...) He stares at me for a few seconds and then starts yelling, "I'm going to come over there and stab you!" I yelled back, "You start walking towards me and I call the cops." I got my phone out quick, dialed 911 and had my finger ready to tap the call button on the screen. He screams back at me, "I'm calling the cops first!"
I'm thinking, you're going to call the cops!!!???! WTF is this a dream??? He's got his phone out and is talking on it. To me, it didn't make sense for him to be calling the cops after he threatened to stab me. So, I start to walk away while keeping him in my line of sight and my phone out. When I get a block away or so, I start heading back to my place. All of the sudden, a cop car comes out of fucking nowhere and two cops burst out of the car with their guns drawn
They start screaming at me to put my hands up. I can still picture this clearly in my head today.
I comply. They handcuff me and start searching me. The cops immediately calm down after seeing that I have no knife and am not fucked up on anything. I start explaining the situation...dude threatened to stab ME
and that I was going to call 911 if he started across the street and then I started walking away when he didn't cross the street. They uncuffed me, thanked me for complying and being calm. They apologized for the whole thing and even offered to give me a ride home. I'm sure the tweaker got taken to the ER as he was obviously not in a right state of mind. I mean, you've gotta be pretty out of it to threaten to stab someone and then call the cops and say that someone threatened to stab you???
Can anyone here that uses/used meth explain why anyone would enjoy staying up for days at a time with the end result being crazy paranoia that causes one to literally become insane??? I've never understood that.

Good job on no doing meth for a month! I've heard from friends that meth addiction is a bitch. I've personally never really enjoyed meth too much. In high school I did it a handful of times. It was fun for a few hours, but after that I just wished it would get out of my system so I could go to sleep.
