What is Crystal Meth?
Tik is the most common “street name” for “crystalized methamphetamine” or “Crystal Meth” in South Africa. This drug is a highly addictive synthetic psycho-stimulant. The white crystal powder can be snorted (inhaled via the nose), smoked or injected intravenously. South Africa’s “tik” epidemic is most prevalent in the Western Cape, however the drug knows no race or cultural boundaries and permeates all facets of our society.
Signs of Meth Addiction
The tell tale signs of meth use are an increased attention & decreased fatigue, activity & wakefulness, talkativeness, loss of appetite, euphoria & “rush” sensations, rapid respiration, irregular heartbeat and in some cases hyperthermia. Physical or psychological need for meth increases rapidly this results in increased amounts to reproduce the same effects. Meth addicts start “seeking” and continue to use the drug, despite harmful consequences.
Effects of Crystal Meth Abuse
Using crystal meth on a short term but yet consistent basis, may result in feelings of chronic anxiety and paranoia, most users also experience severe insomnia. Thoughts of suicide are experienced with many meth users.

The feeling of hopelessness will fade and left ahead of you will be clarity, opportunity, happiness and most of all hope
