Can explain what's is the difference between smoking meth and inject meth? Is there any difference on the urine? How long will the urine clear?

Can explain what's is the difference between smoking meth and inject meth? Is there any difference on the urine? How long will the urine clear?

Methamphetamine: Methamphetamine's elimination half-life is around 10 hours, and it's detectable in your urine for 1-4 days. It will remain detectable in your hair follicles for up to 90 days. It stays in your system longer when injected than smoked. The drug is extremely dangerous no matter how it's used -- you risk heart attack and stroke even when young. Very addictive too. Please stay away from it.

Smoking meth n breastfeeding? How long should someone wait till they can resum breastfeeding?

Smoking meth n breastfeeding? How long should someone wait till they can resum breastfeeding?

Time for a choise: Either quit & raise the baby or drop it off at a "safe" location & let it go into foster care. There is no way to avoid dosing baby with your meth. Breast milk is made continuously & remains tainted by any use. Get help/clean up and you could raise baby but as a user you have chosen a path that won't work with being a mother. I'm sure you have mixed feelings, but users use & parents don't

Odd question: Maybe a better question is, "why am I using meth when I'm already in enough trouble? " time to get serious and talk to a substance abuse counselor. Trying to beat the system is destined to lead to disaster.

My ex has been smoking meth for a while. Never touched a drug besides alcohol ever. If its been on her skin and mouth how long does it stay. Test fri.

My ex has been smoking meth for a while. Never touched a drug besides alcohol ever. If its been on her skin and mouth how long does it stay. Test fri.

If you didn't ingest: Methamphetamine, the amount that made be transferred through skin (which is essentially zero) or through kissing (which is close to zero) shouldn't result in a positive urine test. If you have depression, and are "blacking out" (losing consciousness?) you should seek medical attention for the cause and treatment. Having a methamphetamine user in your life isn't helping either, I imagine.

My friend told me that her boyfriend tells her it is ok to smoke meth and breastfeed their baby. How long after smoking meth will it stay in your breast milk?

BAD IDEA: Meth will be in breast milk for at least a day or two after smoking. This is just one of many reasons not to smoke meth. I am very worried about the health and safety of your friend and her baby if her bf is telling her this.

I am a 38 yr old daily meth smoker. I've been smoking now for almost 5 months. Prior to that I would snort and did so for over a yr. I'm experiencing?

Incomplete question: Your question is not clear. However, whatever your question, the answer is quit doing meth. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex.

What should I exspect when I've quite smoking crystal meth 'as knowen as jib'?

Healthy longer life: Jib is just one slang term for crystal methamphetamine, and isn't any different than any other "brand" of this awful drug. What you should expect is relapse, unless you get involved in some form of support system. It is a difficult drug to quit, and congratulations on making the decision. There is no "withdrawal" syndrome, though fatigue and increased appetite and sleep may occur, lasting < 1 week.

I was smoking meth none stop until I found out I was pregant. After going to the female dr. There's only a sack could I be the cause?

Addiction may be the: Cause, something over which you were not able to exercise much control. It is impossible in any one specific case to know what the cause of an abnormal pregnancy is, but certainly use of many drugs, including methamphetamine, can be associated with such outcomes. GET HELP NOW to stop and stay stopped, and to understand the things you can do to feel ok WITHOUT drugs. You need ongoing support.
