Now that you have some idea of what meth can make you look like, here is why- Because meth causes the blood vessels to constrict, it cuts off the steady flow of blood to all parts of the body. Heavy usage can weaken and destroy these vessels, causing tissues to become prone to damage and inhibiting the body's ability to repair itself. Think about that-when you take meth it is basically like your are slowly killing your flesh.\u00a0 If your flesh isn't getting oxygen rich blood, of course it is going to make you look like a corpse.\u00a0 Add to the dying skin acne, and crank bugs and you have really got a mess on your hands.\u00a0 In our society looks are so important, so even if you don't care about rotting your innards, maybe you will think about rotting your outside before you ever consider meth. These facts also highlight the need for meth abuse treatment if you are already addicted. For more information about drug and alcohol treatment, please visit The Right Step today!
