Another silly search: How to counteract methamphetamine’s negative side effects?

An extra short one today. Somebody got here after searching for this.

How to counteract methamphetamine’s negative side effects?

Answer: (drum roll) … Don’t use meth.

Seriously, it’s an intelligently phrased question (for a change), so I guess the searcher is not an idiot. But you can’t counteract the effects while you continue to use, which I assume is what you want. You have to accept the fact that you can’t use meth any longer, and then the effects won’t need to be counteracted because you won’t have them anymore.

I’ve written about those effects before, so you can search this blog if you want to read about them. But the effects aren’t permanent. The point of exposing how many and how severe they are is to bring them to your attention so that you can wake up and realize what you are doing to yourself, not to try to find a way of living with them. Unless of course you’re happy to be a meth zombie for the rest of your life.
