I learned early on that drugs could ruin a person’s life. When I was a kid, I remember getting annoyed at all the people who tried to teach me about that, but now that I’m an adult, I’m glad they did. I am one of the blessed people who never got caught up in that craziness. I think it’s important to write about the dangers of drug addiction every so often so we can teach today’s kids about it. In this article, I’ll explain how you can upload a pic and see your face on meth.
I’ve touched on this aspect of drug addiction before. Two years ago I wrote an article called Shocking: The Effects Of Drug Addiction On The Face. After that one published, I received a few emails and phone calls from people who had either gone through it or knew someone who had. Now you’ll get to see it on a more personal level. Through a new website, you can see your face on meth. Yup, your actual face. It’s disturbing to say the least.
When I wrote the original article a few years ago (the one linked above), I did quite a big of research. I leaned there is a reason why people who take meth have destroyed faces. Here is an excerpt from that article:
Often times meth users will feel like there are bugs crawling under their skin on their face, and they pick at it until it bleeds. Also, meth and heroin are often times cut with sugar, and when injected into the veins, sugar causes acne. It’s like an amplified effect of eating a bunch of candy bars. Meth also causes blood vessels to constrict, so part of the face shrinks, which gives the look of premature aging and sunken in features. Teeth can also be affected by turning black or even falling out. Also, since many drug addicts don’t eat or sleep well, that contributes to their face transformation.
Pretty scary, right? And remember, the face transformation is only one effect of many when it comes to drug use, or in this case, meth use. If you are ready to see what your face would look like if you became a meth user, just click over to Your Face On Meth.
It’s a visual interpretation of what your face would look like gradually over time if you were a user. It’s an eerie look into the future for anyone who is considering taking this dangerous drug. I tried the website myself, and you can see my face on meth below. I’ve always thought the saying “hugs not drugs” was cheesy, but seriously, consider a hug instead. You don’t want to look like this.
