'Speed' Methylamphetamine

Since I have started school at U.N.R, I have been expose to a more variety of drugs than high school. Speed (Methylamphtamine) is a drug that I totally despise. I was in shock because I did not realize how many students were addicts to this drug. I have always known what this drug does to people because I know someone that is addict to speed. The drug is one of the most addicting drugs out there and I hope the information I have researched on can make you never think twice about trying this addicting drug.

Speed is a stimulant, a drug that can make one feel cheerful and wide awake for days after days. Students use the drug for intensive study habits or during depressing moments of school. On Speed, users never want to eat because the drug shrivels up their stomach that causes massive weight loss.

One of the reasons' women use the drug is to lose weight, which is an extremely unhealthy way of doing it. What Speed does is it effects the middle nervous system, and stimulates the brain. The drug causes insomnia, restlessness, and a fake sense of acting normal. People either snort the drug up the nose or smoke it through the mouth. After staying up for days on Speed the drug where's off and a person will sleep for days, there is a larger fatigue and one will be so damn depressed.

I stopped talking to a friend because he was so addicted to this horrible drug called Speed. One thing I noticed is he was a totally different person when he was using speed. Whenever he was high on the drug he was a great guy with all this incredible energy, nothing would ever possibly make him upset.
