Please STOP: at this point there's nothing to do. If you feel terrible you may need to go to the emergency room Please stop doing this in the future

Meth ice: is the purest form of methamphetamine, followed by "base" and then "speed" The flood of monoamines to the brain produces an intense rush. Very addicting, extremely dangerous drug. By now ( you posted this question 11 hours ago) the drug has likely worn off. I suggest you add this to the list of things that you should never try again. I can't tell you how many stroke victims I've cared for due to it

Too tempting: Meth is very addictive. The temptation would be too great. You would eventually go back to using it. To quote a great source, "don't be unequally yoked.".

To change a habit such as addiction, you usually have to change your "friends" too. Probably, those relationships are based more on the drug than on true friendships

Addiction damages that part of the brain that allows us to choose to do difficult things. It requires external support to be re-engaged and to function properly. Do follow Dr. Mitchell's advice,. Meth addiction is one of the most gripping, and one of the most damaging.
