About Ice Addiction

Ice combined with speed and a base is a form of potent stimulant drugs known as methamphetamine. Ice may also be called shabu, crystal, and crystal-meth, yet ice is the purest form. Ice comes as a powder or crystals that are usually snorted, injected, or smoked. It only takes a single use of ice to become dependent. The effects include intense pleasure and clarity with lots of energy and clear thinking. Users feel they can make good decisions and plan anything effectively. Side effects also include decreased appetite and increased sex drive. However, psychosis typically involves feelings of extreme suspicion and strange beliefs. Effects hit quickly and can last for some time, up to 24 hours. Coming down can be horrible with headaches, blurred vision, poor concentration, and a hangover like effect. Withdraw from ice is often the reason people need inpatient rehab as withdraw can be scary and extreme.
