Samantha Darling : These videos are my favourite. They are very real and want you to know that drugs arent that great nor are addicts all that scary.

Thrive After Abuse : I’m not even sure what I just watched. This video minimizes (at best) meth addiction. Did it ever occur to you guys that people who use meth are probably not the most accurate historians as to their behavior or how bad their problem really is? This video doesn’t bring to even touch on all of the poor choices that stem from meth use. Most likely every meth user out there thinks that they don’t have a problem and are just using meth to lose weight or for energy and that they are still a great parent or employee, until they hit rock bottom and realize their life is a wreck. If anything, this video is a great example of what denial looks like, and how drug addicts don’t (tragically) see they have a problem until it’s often too late.

ashleigh woytuik : Wow . This is actually one of the most ill informed videos I have ever watched about this drug. You would be doing the world a favour by taking this down and removing your ignorance. Let’s minimize and justify Meth use. Let’s make it seem okay. I don’t really know where you got your facts from or what you think this video is accomplishing ?? I’ve worked with Meth addicts for the past 6 years. If you’re going to make a video about meth let’s put forth the straight facts. Meth will kill you. Don’t make a cutesy cartoon to make this seem more acceptable. I’ve seen 6 people die from 2017-2018 because of their meth addiction..and that’s just It’s in the shelter I work in. It’s an evil drug..we’re not shaming the people that use it we’re saying this is a fucking serious drug. Not to mention 70% of the meth out there is being cut with fentanyl ..which will kill you a lot faster. Contrary to your belief meth addicts don’t lay around all day. If they are it’s because they are coming down from the drug...when they are high that’s a different story. And a good amount of the come down is spent in such a paranoid state that they are too scared to sleep. So don’t spout this bullshit. How about you talk about the fact that most of these mothers that use meth will eventually have their children taken from them due to neglect. Don’t make meth seem like a drug you can control the use off ..because you can’t. This isn’t a drug that you can be a “functioning addict” on. And even if there is someone that can..that functioning and control of it will not last long. Meth addiction is horrible the addict is not. There is a distinction there. Meth will rot your teeth the fuck out of your mouth and your skin deteriorate at prolonged use. The good news is that these things can be fixed and prevented for the most part. Step 1 ..don’t ever start doing meth. Step 2..if you are there is help out there for you. Every city has resources and addictions counsellors or help lines to talk to. You’re not alone

Redemptions Only : Did your drug dealers force you to make this video are you guys okay blink twice

Dustin Mulligan : Was a tweaker for about 6 years, but have managed to get to rehab and have been clean for a few years now. Meth is so damn addicting. The first time I tried it I knew I was in trouble. I was up to daily use in no time, and the next 6 years were a nightmare! Nasty drug for sure, and there are so many stigmas around it. Like the whole "faces of meth". I managed to keep my teeth and not pick my face off. But in the end the stigmas never bothered me. As long as people know it's fucked up, than that's good enough for me! I didn't expect people to understand such a ridiculous lifestyle. Anyway... Anyone out there who wants to get clean, you can do it! It was a tough road, but I finally managed to get into school (Horticulture) and got myself a job at a greenhouse. My life is almost back to normal. It's tough but you can get to that point. Do whatever you can to get out before it's too late!

Dana Bell : I have dozens of friends that did meth, many of them: went crazy, got seriously paranoid, had permanent nervous ticks and twitches, went to jail and/or prison, lost all their teeth, became homeless, lost all the veins in their body, got STDs, became kleptomaniacs, lost their good looks, couldn't keep a job, became complete junkies, were terrible parents, sold their bodies for meth, became nymphomaniacs, became ridiculously emaciated, became untrustworthy, became meth dealers and the list goes on. Meth is pretty much the worst common drug addiction you can have and this video is glorifying it in a horrible way. Even the tweakers they based these "facts" on relapsed and could not remain meth free. Tweak is a fucked up drug and everything I know about Meth is not wrong.

Surah Online : *Stop it. Get some help*

Caitlyn Efird : November 24th makes 7 monthes sober💕

Rebecca Swanson : I get it. I was one of the high functioning addicts. I found out that I had ADD. I never got all crazy like everyone else. I spent alot of money though. Sex was the last thing I wanted. I could focus and work. It is very dangerous and illegal. Dealers will put poison in it sometimes. Battery acid, drain cleaner, arsenic. It would of killed me for sure. Thank God of my belief in God. He saved me. I was diagnosed with ADHD. That's why I felt normal on it. I actually gained weight. My family had no idea. I did it for 10 years. I stopped when I was pregnant. Started again when my daughter was 3. Stopped when she 11. I joined AA and continued for 7 years. I loved it. I highly recommend support and believing in God. He loves you and has a better way.

Nkanyiso Innocent Khwane : So, Breaking Bad much got it right?

MrSindala : I find your message weak and ambiguous. You almost make it sound like it's not that bad to be addicted. Oscar 'happened to relapse' after a couple of months. Like that was a random thing. And Jessica just kinda disappeared. But your conclusion is: "Recovery is always possible". Really?! What part of your story supports that conclusion? That Oscars friends where stoked when he was clean? And that you're sure Jessica's friends would also be? Thats the basis of your conclusion? Let's be clear about this: for many people recovery is NOT possible. They're too screwed up and their lives destroyed. There's nothing else left for them than to continue being addicts, live miserable lives and die alone.

Dat Deer : This video just made 2000 more meth heads

Squared Up : I'm glad someone finally made this video. Portraying meth addicts as violent psychos only discourages them from seeking proper treatment.

Tr4ns D0n4ld : kids and meth ... a match made in heaven 😂😂😂

GravitySloth : Yeah I find the romanticization of meth use that is so common in pop culture now to be really problematic

J. Varni : If you think this video in any way romanticized or trivialized meth addiction, you either didn't actually watch the whole video, or you didn't actually listen and only heard what was necessary for you to get up on your high horse and start feeding the actual cause for most addiction; societal shunning. We get it, ivory tower residents, you're perfect and have no vices or weaknesses to speak of. If only you used your perfection to help others instead of glaring down your hypocritical noses at others and doing absolutely nothing to help anyone except yourself in inflating that already comically large ego.

Metqa : The worst thing about this video is the comment section. It doesn't glorify nor vilify. It just shows two people's experiences compared the the commercialized hype. What is wrong with that? I didn't watch much breaking bad so I don't know how cool it made meth seem, but I also realize that 1980 PSA garbage was garbage and didn't tell the truth about WHY people would start using something in the first place that they KNOW is bad for them. It seems part of the solution to helping people not use drugs is to offer viable helpful alternatives to common life problems that the DRUGS seem to solve even if it's temporary. Rather than demonize people who why not help them avoid in the first place. The Thing about the moms using it, provide more social services and programs so that mom can have some time for herself. Let people have more sick leave and vacation time at work instead of working themselves sick at overtime for minimum wage and no time off.

Nic W : I'm a recovered meth addict & can assure you this video is based on truth. I've been clean for 2 years & will never go back. You don't forget what you do when high on meth & I remember all too well exactly what went on during both times I suffered from drug-induced psychosis. I know precisely what my behaviour was like. I never posed a danger to anyone, and if anything I craved love & attention from someone, anyone… everyone I knew had turned on me - scared of the meth addict or at least the perception of what they are. While I believed other issues in my life were the problem (& not the drug), deep down, I still knew that I had a problem & all addicts do. But they are over stigmatised by government warnings & media influences. It's not glorifying meth use. The community need to be educated on the truth. While some addicts lose their jobs, family, money & start to commit crimes, this is certainly not the case for all. A functioning meth addict can support their own habbit & it often goes unnoticed even by those closest to them. There are many sides to meth, authorities only focus on what will "shock" people. But it's not the reality.

Luke Baylife : You figure out that its mostly Americans watching this by the sheer amount of "Omq this is a pro meth video". It's not, especially when the video ends with the 2 people relapsing and possibly being dead by now. It's a pro recovery video or anti demonization one that highlights how easy it is for "normal" people (need the " " for the audience im addressing) to fall into meth addiction and go unnoticed because they dont turn into mindless ugly monsters the second they take them... This video has such a clear and strong message and yet all you dimwits go back to your black and white ideas of good/bad and pro/contra. How about some fucking differentiation? Every cultural debate I see US citizens discussing in to two definite answers that force you choose one stupid idea. Drug legilastion/decriminalization has been working wonders in Portugal, because they stopped focusing on punishing drug addicts and thinking of them as human trash that got what it deserved and instead focused on the recovery of people that could have easily been you or me if we had different living conditions.

FennecTECH : you shot meth into your wang?

Sammy Markoe : Hey um... I understand that this video is meant to break down stigma’s, but you guys are making drugs seem too normal. Meth, cocaine, and other hard drugs have no justification for their use even if they come in an orange prescription bottle from your doctor labeled as something else.

Bizaron : How the hell did you people come to a conclusion that this video is somehow glamorizing meth? It still shows addicted people who do stuff like masturbating for several hours watching porn etc... That's not really healthy guys. Also, anyone who actually knows anything about metamphetamine knows its danger lie in heavy and/or long term use, it really won't make you instantly addicted and into a meth zombie (and yes, I have tried that shit once and have no temptation to try it again, maybe only if I need to stay up for the whole night and be productive). This video only wants to calm down the stupid hysteria and clear all the scare tactics media are using so some politicians can make themselves look like the good guys who are tough on drugs when eventually they are just doing more harm than good. On the other hand, crazed lunatic addicts exist but they are quite rare and would usually turn out to be that way anyway (most likely just choosing a different drug, for example alcohol). Yet, there are better drugs of choice if you want to get batshit insane - search for PCP, flakka or datura stramonium. Seriously, people eat Adderal which is full of amphetamines (pretty close to meth, the only difference is mostly caused by the fact that Adderal is used orally while meth is commonly snorted or smoked but if you snorted Adderal, you would basically achieve pretty similar effects) and no one bats an eye. Society has basically done this ultimatively retarded thing: Adderal (levo and dextroamphetamine) = THE GOOD SPEED Metamphetamine = THE EVIL SPEED A sane person would not take part in this bullshit and just ask: WHAT THE FUCK, IT'S JUST A MOLECULE YOU MORONS, STOP BEING EMOTIONAL ABOUT IT.

Crazy Geek : First this channel tries to justify talking during a movie and now they make a pro meth video...unsub.

Pink Cave Woman : Cracked? What is your problem? I have a family member who is so messed up on meth that he's been in prison 6 times! His skin breaks out into scabs all over, he loses so much weight his cheeks sink in, it makes him so paranoid he thinks everyone, including his Mom, is trying to kill him. Meth users often become violent due to paranoia, fear makes meth users do some crazy crap. I could go on and on but it would take hours to describe the hell that guy puts his family, neighbors, and friends through. No more Cracked for me. You are EVIL~~

Doreen Green : I have to ask though, where did this all start? I mean it's not like you can just buy it in a store and it isn't something that you're casually just introduced to at a party like maybe marajuana. If i was feeling tired after looking after kids or something taking meth wouldn't be my goto thought.

Egoraptors Chin : The meth heads around me are way different then these guys

RoseColoredIris : Meth is highly addictive. So addictive that at some point you will want to do nothing but smoke meth. That is the real danger of meth. The sores and lesions on your face come at the later stage, when you start selling your body or stealing just to get enough money to get more meth. Drugs are inherently destructive because you start to build a tolerance the more you do it, making you NEED more. And I mean "need." As in, if you stop taking the drug your body will start to going into withdrawal. As plenty of ex-users will tell you withdrawal can be excruciating. So you need more every day and if you ever stop, you will be in excruciating discomfort. This is the recipe that drugs use to ruin countless peoples lives. I'm not sure why you would ever want to paint meth in any sort of positive way. "It helps mothers get through the day." Are you serious? 1:03 That's a women doing meth in front of her kids and giving a thumbs up. Look how happy the kids are. Its just weird. The whole tone of the video. I get that you were trying to humanize meth addicts but I think you flubbed the execution. You can argue "not all drugs are bad" but picking meth is a bold choice.

Mark Schantz : This video is ill informed at best and Dangerous at worse

Saturnino Bahena : *AFTER I SHOT METH IN MY PENES*

Gabriel Moreira : This vídeo is so much wrong

Ashley Billings : I think 90% precent of people who have been addicted to meth...or had a loved one addicted to meth...would completely disagree with this video...it really will destroy your life...you will steal...your loved one will end up stealing from you. With all the drugs in the us it's like the zombie apocalypse and anyone who's smart will stay away from drugs or people on drugs...don't believe this video

Tom Hannah : Ok, let's drop back a few notches, to Adderall, which I took for 30 years, day in, day out, using it every morning to get motivated to go to work, accomplish things, took another on the way home so I had energy to be a father, and after the kids went to bed, to do my part-time job, artwork. That's right, 30 years! With no problems, no abuse, no side effects, it became my favorite drug. It gives you just enough of a lift that you want to do things, be productive, but used as directed, is no more dangerous than aspirin. I was diagnosed ADD in my 30s, and took it under careful psychiatrist supervision until 2 years ago, when my fucking state decided to ban it. Apparently too many people enjoyed it too much, some committing crimes, or dying of overdose, but not me. Now I sit in my room, browse the internet, play a couple old games on a shit PC, but I have no energy to actually do anything anymore. Fuck you, state, coming between Doctors and patients.

Dej Avenue : Proper administration. Proper state of mind. Proper purpose for using. Don't chase the dragon. And do not ever let it interfere with personal affairs especially when it involves family, friend, and romantic/spousal relationships. Its a game you have to play right otherwise it'll be the death of you. Speaking from a 14 year casual users perspective.

RobbieSS : This video sounds like pro meth

joshua fiddy allen : wel that was refreshingly real. time to smoke a bowl.

starting over : Another example of why sometimes we have to close doors to people not because we don't love them but because its toxic for ourselves.

David Ward : I don't understand how so many people get lost in drug addiction. I've always treated drugs like toys. I take them out and play, then put em up when it's time to work or spend family time. They (drugs) have always been just a recreational tool to have a great time with friends. I know I may be an exception to the rule, but I really think many adults are the same. I'm not talking bout just weed .

JustATadOfInsanity : Okay this is the thing. I get that you guys didn’t really get the whole story since both of your people just kinda dipped on you. My mom is a meth addict (she snorts it which has different modes than smoking it) you guys don’t talk about like with any addiction, meth makes you NEED that drug. So your more likely to make irrational choices while withdrawals (which are more mental than physical) and you guys didn’t mention meth mouth which is how a lot of smokers lose their teeth. You guys under play ALOT of the troubles with meth, and when you smoke it, you usually get more aggressive and violent. Not like the commercials mind you but still violent. Your heroine one was better because you guys had most of the facts. You guys tried to hard to make this one “not like we think” that you instead down played EVERYTHING and underminded the actual seriousness of it.

Your Friendly Neighborhood Bitch, Karen : THIS! I love when you do videos like This! Thank you

Mikhail Hunter : Probably relapsed due to the interview process. I worked in Mental Health and met people who have done meth. They all said those groups where get together and talk about it doesn't help because it makes them reminisce about the high they felt when doing the drug, and the negative feelings that made them do it in the first place. I hope people watching this video don't go out there and try meth because that's the vibe i got from this video. I am sure they are trying to promote tolerance but I guarantee someone tries meth because of this video. The fear mongering commercials may exaggerate a bit but depending on how you administer the drug and how long you've been doing it your teeth may fall out, and your skin starts to look like sand paper.

StupidGayBearName : Holy shit, an honest video about drugs, never thought I'd see the day..

biomutant242 : DO NOT WATCH THIS - LIES. THERE IS NO JUSTIFICATION FOR METH USE AND THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS CHIPPING - THERE IS NO CASUAL OR "MODERATE" USE OF METH. i USED IT ONCE AND I HAVE PERMANENT BRAIN DAMAGE.

Mark Sanchez : Meth sucks

Smiles : Meth elevates your mood and energy to levels that were never meant to be felt by any living thing in any situation. It rewires your brain to crave those impossible levels of stimulation. It's the most insidious drug out there because functioning is "easy" until it becomes impossible.

wasup23tube : You commenters are missing the point. They are trying to tell people who try it that you need to know its not an instant transformation. It is to show them that even though they don't instantly turn into a zombie it is not a sign they can keep doing it.

PASTRAMIGIRLS : I think Cracked wants me to use crack

williy will i am : So was that a yay or nay for meth

Miguel Almonte : Wtf, is this?! This sounds like a story straight out of The Onion.

Greg Nasser : Best way to quit is to never start.
