Using crystal meth probably causes more damage to the brain than lungs and some studies suggest significant psychological/mental or cognitive impairment and higher risk for dementia. Smoking cigarettes is the #1 cause of lung cancer, but COPD (chronic obstructive lung disease) causes much more disability/lower quality of life. Quantity and duration of use influence risk. Consult doc. Good luck
